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

  • 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.

  • A nice little place to have a meal and look at the harbour. It's starting to look a little run down now, I remember it being much better and vibier. I hope they give it a nice clean up and upgrade.

  • Wow it was so wonderful moving around the sea on small boats. Seeing different kinds of fishes. Wind blows and waves were making the boat to go faster. It waz an awesome experience

  • The cruise in the bay is informative and fun. Seeing the sheer size of the ships and their cargo capacity is mind boggling. Fun fact....the bay is used as a nursery by all kinds of sea creaters as it is safe and calm.

  • Enjoyed sailing on the ship, side seeing and information on car and parcel transportation to other countries by ships. A well managed little mall on the side for shopping and restaurants.
