Rocktail Bay is a beautiful rugged beach reserve run by the luxury operator Wilderness Safaris. Located on a wild stretch of coast North of Durban, Rocktail Bay is not your classic beach destination but a truly wild coastline with miles of deserted beach, serious diving and a huge area of wilderness to explore inland.
