Brighton Beach and Ansteys Beach on The Bluff is situated between Durban Central and the South of Durban. The Bluff is renowned for its world famous surf spot “Cave Rock”, unspoilt beaches and tidal pool. There are many rock pools to explore as well as excellent surfing, diving and fishing spots.
Garvies Beach is a nice, long stretch of sand in front of a thick residential area within The Bluff, just south of Durban Central. Garvies is a much admired surfing spot with a strong local support, but due to it’s powerful surf, it’s best left to the more experienced surfers. When Anstey’s Beach is a little too crowded, you can always drive over to Garvies for a more relaxed time in the sun.Dolphins frolic year-round close to shore and whales are often spotted in the winter months. The thick coastal vegetation is home to many monkeys and mongoose.
With protected open spaces and no high rise buildings to spoil the coast line, these beaches maintain an environmental awareness that has prevented this area from becoming another concrete holiday town.
