Activities/Attractions: The bustling town of Richards Bay is vibrant and fast becoming the north coast's premiere holiday destination, offering spectacular scenery and unspoilt beaches. It is one of the closest sea destinations from Gauteng and enjoys a summer climate all year round.

The town boasts the country's largest harbour and some of its most magnificent wetland scenery. "Industrial Tourism" is actively promoted and groups are able to visit industrial plants, mines and other operations. The town also offers the visitor entrance to Zululand. This once forgotten corner of the African continent is a land of exquisite beauty characterised by incredible diversity.

On its eastern boundary its golden shores are gently caressed by the warm waters of the Indian Ocean. The coastline stretches some three hundred and fifty kilometres from the mouth of the mighty Tugela River in the south to the Mozambique border in the north. The coastal plains include endless unspoilt beaches and coastal conservation areas and incorporate the largest estuarine system in Southern Africa.

Richards Bay is ideally situated near the ever popular game reserves of Hluhluwe and Mkuze, St Lucia wetlands, fishing and diving resorts. Use La Rochelle as a stop over while exploring Northern Zululand or stay a while and experience the many waterfront taverns and restaurants, the swimming beaches, the crocodile farm, the up market shopping centres, jet skiing, deep sea fishing, sailing and many more exciting opportunities. Also enjoy:

  • Dolphin Watching
  • Deep Sea Fishing
  • Surf and Fly Fishing
  • 6 Golf Courses
