With it’s many rock pools, tidal pools, paddling pools and warm ocean, pub / restaurant a minutes walk away and the Bluff Country Club Golf Course, one couldn’t ask for more in a vacation where you don’t have to get in a car to enjoy what South Africa, proudly has to offer.
Anstey’s beach has safe netted-bathing with lifeguards on duty.
Wake in the morning to spectacular sunrises, dolphins catching waves on your door-step and the occasional whale breaching in the distance. Take a fishing pole and do some surf-fishing or snorkel in the rock pools, catch a wave or just mellow on the white sands…it’s all yours.
Ansteys Beach on the Bluff in Durban is very close to Cave Rock, which if you’re a surfer, you should be familiar with as it’s a famous surf break. Like many of the beaches in Durban this is an unspoilt and lifeguard protected beach that is well worth a visit.
This beach is a wonderful place to paddle in the shallow waves and the numerous rock and tidal pools are great if you’ve got little ones with you. You can explore these at low tide and learn a little bit about what happens under the surface of the water.
At Ansteys, on any given day you’ll find the water dotted with kite boarders, surfers and body boarders as this is a popular beach thanks to the consistent excellent surf.
