Shipwreck
Jul 2020 • Family
We were at the beach today 22/07/2020 and we found what appears to be a military tag.
It was a little further left of the wreck.

Poor Facilities
Jan 2020
I visit the beach every week and unfortunately the facilities are in a very poor state. The municipal workers really are trying to keep everything clean, however the toilets and the Lifesavers Building needs an urgent upgrade. Safety is a concern with many parties taking place in the parking areas where alcohol are being consumed openly.

Disgrace to Richards Bay

This area used to be a beautiful area that you could take your family for a day out NOW it is just a place for people to drop all their litter, glass bottles etc it is really a shame as it used to be such a beautiful peaceful place

One of the cleanest beaches in KZN
Sep 2019 • Business
Went there on Spring day, unfortunately it was already late, couldn't see much. But on second attempt , the following day, I fell in love with the cleanness of the beach and the water.

The downside is the bathrooms, they need a little bit of TLC.

Sorry sight
Aug 2019 • Family
We went down to the the week after New Year’s Day, and it was sad to see how this beautiful Blue Flag beach has deteriorated to pathetic state.
There is so much glass splinters around on the grassed areas, you dare not walk barefoot. Once we got to the start of the beach, I discovered that they have not repaired the steps that were damaged a year ago by a spring tide. So to get down to the beach you must hop

Beautiful sunrise, but busy daytime beach
Feb 2019 • Friends
We visited this beach to watch the sunrise. It was convenient to park close enough to the water to walk to a nice view of the emerging sun. The only people awake early on the water were a couple fisherman and a couple joggers. The main jetty provides a perfect view.

The main beach is losing its sand, the staircase has even washed away. Also, this beach is really busy during the key parts of the day for swimming. There is nice sand away from main beach that provides a more relaxing experience.

The parking lot is just a party scene. You may have several cars blasting their stereo, competing for who is the loudest, while drinking. This is why I would avoid any peak hours/season at this beach.

Early morning is key, offseason, weekdays.

Beautiful but Spoiled by People!
Dec 2018 • Family
A beautiful beach..... BUT dirty, unsafe with poor facilities. Too many drunk people DRINKING and swimming without swimming costumes - looks like Durban main beach over Christmas! STAY AWAY!
This beach is also not properly maintained by the authorities - municipality, police, etc. No shop (too dangerous) No pool.
Not your typical, beautiful, safe, relaxing BEACH HOLIDAY area at all!!
