Rocky Bay is a beautiful stretch of coastline on the KwaZulu-Natal south coast. It is about 60 km south of Durban and only a few minutes drive from Scottburgh.

There is a beautiful beach at Rocky Bay but the area it gets its name from the rocky stretch of coastline to the south of the beach. This is a great place for young and old to clamber around and look for interesting things amongst the rocks and in the rock pools. The rocks are home to a group of Dassies.

One of the big attractions are the shark-cage diving trips which launch from the beach.

Rocky Bay has a variety of accommodation available including a large caravan park right on the beach.

Although there are some shops and other facilities at Rocky Bay but, should you need anything, you are sure to find it at nearby Scottburgh.
