Brighton Beach on The Bluff also referred to as “the friendly suburb” and located south of Durban between the city centre and the airport, is well known for its undeveloped beaches, tidal pool, and the world-famous surf point “Cave Rock.” Numerous rock pools may be found, and there are top-notch surfing, diving, and fishing locations as well.
Year-round, dolphins play around the shore, and in the winter, whale sightings are common. There are lots of monkeys and mongooses living in the dense coastal forest. Along with nature walks, the Bluff Nature Reserve offers two bird hides that offer fantastic viewing opportunities.
Brighton Beach nevertheless upholds an environmental consciousness that has stopped this place from becoming another concrete vacation destination thanks to protected open spaces and the lack of high-rise buildings to deface the coastline.
Situated on the outskirts of Durban, Wilson’s Wharf, the Botanical Gardens, and uShaka Marine World can all be reached within 20 minutes of driving time. Being close to the harbour and the city’s southern industrial hubs of Prospecton, Jacobs, and Mobeni makes it convenient for business executives as well.

Additionally, the region is home to a wide range of eateries, including pizza parlours, steakhouses, and seafood restaurants.
Friendly locals and a laid-back atmosphere encourage the holiday spirit.
