Wilsons Wharf - Review

Every city needs its own Wilson’s Wharf. And we’re pretty jealous of Durban for setting a standard as it does. Let me draw you the picture. There’s a magnificent east-facing beach. Along this runs a lovely wooden esplanade that lights up with romantic lights in the evenings. Close by the esplanade a row of excellent restaurants fill the air with delicious scents. Are you jealous yet? An evening out at Wilson’s Wharf is one of the best ways to spend the Durban evening and night. It’s impossible to visit just once. It’s not just the atmosphere, but you feel compelled to check out the restaurants one by one. In the day, there’s a fish market on the wharf. Nearby, you can All in all, a trendy mix of boats, food, drink and atmosphere makes this one of Durban’s most popular attractions.

Wilsons Wharf, Durban Reviews

  • Nice views. Nice eat places. Lots of parking. Lots to do. Good for the kids

  • Looking good with a fresh coat of paint. This place has great potential. Such a good way to dine and relax beside the water.

  • Not like it used to be and such a pity. Venue is great but why have most of the shops left - Price/Rent may be the key. When I lived in Durban I would go there for breakfast most weekends. Just visited there last week from Kuwait and was saddened by the lack of stalls.

  • I decided to check out Wilson's Wharf on Sunday this past week. When I used to go there it was tranquil, beautiful and clean. This last time was filthy and smelt like rotting fish not to mention it looked like a rubbish dump. So this is just a friendly warning ⚠

  • Durban has some amazing places to visit and this just one of them...with wide a variety of place eat at and enjoy the great view of Durban's Harbour with live music... Great for the family.
