About Marina Beach

Perched on the border of the Impanyati Nature Reserve, the Marina Beach has been dubbed the “Honolulu of the South Coast”, thanks to its subtropical vegetation and laid-back vibe. To recognise its excellent condition, cleanliness, safety, and biodiversity, it has been awarded the coveted status of a Blue Flag beach. This is an international award that is really quite a feat.

The light-tan sands are soft underfoot and a pleasure for strolling, jogging, reading, sunbathing, or making awesome sand castles. This sand is lapped by the warm, blue waters of the Indian Ocean, which offers the odd fabulous wave for surfers, body-boarders, hydrofoilers, and stand-up paddlers. Of course, these are also prime conditions for a refreshing swim.

Families with young children are particularly prone to swimming in the tidal pool, where the water is calm and shallower. Life guards are on duty from January to December.

Thanks to the excellent facilities and amenities, not only is this beach equipped with plenty of parking and clean ablutions, but it even offers these features for those that make use of wheelchairs. This means it is entirely accessible to physically disabled visitors.

The village of Southbroom, which is home to Marina Beach, is equipped with the basics in terms of stores, a petrol station, and some restaurants. It is a little over 1.5 hours from the CBD of Durban and its international airport. The Mpenjati Nature Reserve is a treasure trove of plant and animal species that make exploring its trails particularly special and memorable.
