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.

  • Speak of cozzy places for outings, romantic yet attracts a lot of crowd & students especially weekend nights, variety of eating & drinking outlets from breakfast to dinner, with a wide range of desserts, coffee & tea. Plenty parking & restrooms available, great environment to bring kids. I like the combination of lights & water in the evenings. Wheelchair accessible. Card & cash accepted.

  • A great place to sit and look at the yachts and ships go by. Various boating companies offer rides for a fee and is great for a group. There is a flee market sort of place which is also great for souvenir shopping. Various bars as well.

  • Cruise of the harbour great fun, even though weather wasn't great. Crew really helpful - 2 disabled people in our party. We're helped on and off the boat with great care. A different perspective of the harbour.

  • Not too sure what to say... the day we were there, they had no electricity so it would be unfair to judge the place. Looked a bit neglected and could do with a revamp. Used to be a really lovely place a couple of years ago. The place has so much potential, it just needs someone to go in there and really make it a Durban attraction again...

  • Right beside the harbour front with restaurants and bars to choose from. Safe on site parking. Good views of Africa's biggest harbour with some retail shopping available. Daily boat cruises for sightseeing or sea fishing. Clean public toilets.
