3 laid back activities to try in KZN
If you want to experience KZN in all its glory, here's three places to include in your summer bucket list.
Enjoy a drink at The Lighthouse Bar at the Oyster Box
What better way to experience a Durban summer than with a cocktail in hand and views of the ocean? The Lighthouse Bar at The Oyster Box is the perfect place to watch the sunset.
Sitting on the terrace that looks onto the beach and the uMhlanga lighthouse, the red and white colour decor scheme echoes the lighthouse and is a perfect backdrop. Try their signature uMhlanga Sling or their non-alcoholic Ginger Rock Shandy. There is also a gin menu.
