Durban Atractions close to Whales Tale Bed & Breakfast

Durban is more than just a city ... with its natural harbour, busy port and Golden Mile of impressive international hotels and glorious beaches - regarded as the definitive coastal ‘playground in the sun’. Rather, Durban is a region that extends up to Umhlanga Rocks to the north, to Inchanga and Botha’s Hill in the west, and just beyond Yellowwood Park in the south. The outdoors is a major focus and Durban not only boasts the warm Indian Ocean and various water-focused theme parks, like uShaka Marine World, it also functions as the gateway to two World Heritage sites – the uKhahlamba Drakensberg Park and the Greater St Lucia Wetlands Park. Just beyond its boundaries, Durban boasts the beautiful Dolphin Coast, and the historical Battlefields, whilst closer to home are the Valley of a Thousand Hills, the Kranzkloof Nature Reserve, and the little towns of Kloof and Hillcrest.


uShaka Marine World

uShaka Marine World Incorporates fresh and sea water, natural materials, the re-creation of a wreck of a 1940's cargo ship, with the 5th largest aquarium in the world by volume of water, coupled with indigenous African imagery, lush vegetation and maritime images of the Port of Durban, plus a water slides amusement park, uShaka is a complete 'Marine World'.





Bluff National Park Golf Club

The Bluff National Park Golf course is set in a beautiful wetland conservation area in Kwa Zulu Natal South Africa.  Fish Eagle soar overhead and the gregarious Plovers, known locally as Kiwiet’s raise their young in the rough - beware the unwary golfer that ventures too close.  Herons gracefully stalk the abundant fish and pesky moles. Sometimes we are even privileged to receive a visit from the “B52 Bombers” the Pelicans who stop to share the water with the resident Geese and Cormorants. 





Anstey's Beach

Anstey's Beach is situated on the Bluff, Durban, near Brighton Beach. It is a very popular beach with local residents and is a good spot for surfing, swimming and fishing. It also has a paddling pool for children.
The beach is protected by shark nets and lifeguards. At times you may see a whale or dolphins beyond the shark nets.





Durban's Golden Mile

The Golden Mile is one of the main tourist attractions in Durban. With loads of surrounding activities.By definition the infamous Golden Mile is a stretch of beach with golden sands from flowing from Vetchies Pier in the South, to the recently constructed Suncoast Casino and Entertainment world in the North. Allowing the sungoers many lavish locations to lay their bronzed bodies, play games and check out the nearby restaurants.



Victoria Street Market

This vibrant Indian Market with its colourful stalls, fishmarket and curio outlets is a favourite for tourists. A wide range of African arts and crafts are available including finely woven baskets, beaded dolls and animals, intricately carved chairs, soapstone sculptures and so much more. There is an equally impressive array of oriental ceramics, brassware, curry powders and spices. Basement parking available.ic
