"Richards Bay" Richards Bay by dejavu2gb

Richards Bay Travel Guide: 10 reviews and 22 photos

Richardsbay was my home for about 5 years of my life. It's a small little town to the north of Durban on the east coast of South Africa.

Its got one of the busiest ports in Africa, and has many large big companies, making it quite an industrial town.

Unfortunately unlike many other bigger towns, there is not loads and loads of things to see and do in Richardsbay
What is good about Richardsbay is that its a very outdoor place, you can laze on the beach, go swimming in the sea, snorkelling, scuba diving even walking around the waterfront is a nice way of spending the time.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Got some nice beaches, and if you are a sun seeker, this is the place for you
  • Cons:Its got many big companies, so quite industrial, not loads to see, and very very hot in summer
