KwaZulu Natal DestinationsBluff, Durban
The headland known simply as “the Bluff” – a thick green belt that has a strong attraction for those who steer clear of the built-up beachside areas of Durban, Amanzimtoti and even Umhlanga Rocks - is a collection of suburbs that cover the stretch from the military base in the north of the Bluff to Treasure Beach in the south.
The Bluff also forms the gateway to the South Coast with its many seaside resorts and other attractions.
The Bluff offers stretches of unspoilt beaches with dunes, rock pools plus favourite fishing, diving and surfing spots that provide sport and recreation for the adventurous. Ansteys Beach with its paddling pools and surf spots is popular with the local residents especially the surfers, body boarders and kite surfers.
Not only is it convenient to Durban International Airport (8kms) and a mere 20 minutes drive to Durban, it also has an 18 hole golf course, mashie course (miniature golf), yacht club, a bird sanctuary and a nature reserve. On the way to the Millennium Tower one can enjoy magnificent harbour and city views or a tour of the old whaling station, one of the last remaining symbols that remind us that whaling took place off the coast of Durban many years ago.
There is a selection of main chain stores to choose from in one of the shopping centres and a variety of restaurants and take-aways ranging from seafood restaurants to steak houses, pizza parlours etc.
Once visited you will return to this friendly coastal suburb.
