A7: Vetch's Pier

Notes and Information
  • Vetch’s Pier (known as “Vetchies” to the locals) is what is left of a man-made pier, jutting out into the sea off Durban Beach. The granite boulders have over time become a reef, home to beds of hard and soft corals, hundreds of fish, and other marine life, including shells.

  • Low tide exposes the top of the reef, and it is about 7m to the bottom at its deepest, making it a great place to snorkel or undertake shallow dives.
