We are about 3 km from the local beach Ansteys. Shark nets make it safe for bathing, a paddling pool for babies and another for toddlers, while the beach is not far for Dad. Life Guards are on duty all the year round. Ansteys has recently been awarded with the coveted international Blue Flag status. This is truly a great achievement. During July if you are lucky you can witness the sardine run and the dolphins swim by quite regularly.

Slightly further down the road is Brighton Beach where there is a paddling pool for small children, with slides. There is also a tidal pool a man-made pool in the sea, the waves come crashing over which is fun at High tide. Life guards are on duty for surfers and swimmers alike. Dad can bring his fishing rod along and try surf fishing; it might just be his lucky day.

For those avid horse racing fans, Clairwood and Greyville Race Courses are not too far where you can have a good meal and enjoy a day or night of exciting racing. There is a minimum of two nights stay.

Beach Belle is situated in The Bluff and it is the ultimate family holiday home. Literally a stone’s throw away from the sea, we have our own beach access and unspoilt sea views. Our garden is outlined with bush and it makes for a very private setting. Our beach is clean, safe and private with plenty of beautiful shells and there are good waves for surfing and often pristine conditions for diving or spear fishing.

The house offers a fully equipped kitchen with granite tops and a sweet little breakfast nook. The dining room is perfect for enjoying a meal and watching the waves roll in. A round table that seats eight guests provides for intimate dinners and the opportunity to share stories of the day’s adventures. A bar fridge and counter space are readily available to service the dining room.

The balcony provides stunning, yet tranquil views. It is the ideal spot for lunch or to sip sundowners. The best part is enjoying a sundowner while dolphins swim past. There is plenty of sea life to look out for and whale watching is particularly good during the winter months when the sardines race past our unique coast. Our B&B guests can enjoy all of this and will be served with delicious breakfasts. We will also cater for special requirements and diets. For our corporate guests that don’t want breakfast, we can provide a packed lunch.

For those who would like to venture into the city, we are just 15 minutes south of Durban's central business district where Durban's Golden Mile, uShaka Marine World and the ICC are situated.

69 Strand offers you a sensational break away, overlooking the tranquil Indian Ocean. Our three fully-equipped self-catering units are located in the Brighton Beach suburb of the Bluff, which is a mere 15 minutes outside of the vibrant city centre of Durban. The 180 degree view captures the Ocean from the sand to the sky, dramatic sunrises & an oceanic experience will leave you relaxed and revitalized. Spotting whales and dolphins from our private hill side deck overlooking the ocean is hardly a rare occasion, an often daily occurrence. The end autumn and winter months see the most sightings of these majestic mammals.

Better known as the friendly suburb, Brighton Beach is renowned for its world famous surf spot “Cave Rock”, unspoilt beaches and tidal pool. There are many rock pools to explore as well as excellent surfing, diving and fishing spots.
Dolphins frolic all year-round close to shore and whales are often spotted during the winter months. The thick coastal vegetation is home to many wild creatures, namely the grey duiker, monkeys and mongoose. The Bluff Nature Reserve has two bird hides that provide excellent bird-watching opportunities in addition to nature trails.

With protected open spaces and no high rise buildings to spoil the exquisite coast line, Brighton Beach still maintains an environmental awareness that has prevented this area from becoming another concrete holiday town. Situated on the outskirts of Durban, it is a mere 20 minute drive to Durban city centre, the International Convention Centre, the WC 2010 Moses Mabhida sports stadiums, Wilson’s Wharf, Botanical Gardens, uShaka Marine World and Durban’s main beaches. It is also only a stone throw away from the city’s premier restaurant mecca, Florida Road. The Durban July, a National horse racing event is held at Greyville Racecourse annually, usually the first Saturday in July.
Perfectly positioned for the discerning business traveller, 69 Strand is also convenient for corporate clients, as it is close to the city’s southern industrial hub of Prospection, Jacobs, Mobeni, as well as the harbour.

Some of the other attractions are the Millennium Tower, a tour of the old whaling station, a game of golf on the 18-hole golf course or shopping at one of the many chain stores. There are also a variety of restaurants and take-aways in the area ranging from seafood restaurants to steak houses, Chinese and Indian take-out, pizza parlours etc.

Assuring you of a tranquil stay at 69 Strand.
