Turn off at the Moss Kolnik offramp which is just passed the Durban International Airport (going towards the S Coast). Turn left and then right. Go through the first set of robots, take the second left. Then turn right into Beach Rd and turn left into the parking lot about 100m up the road. Gremmies is left of the rocks with the swimming pool.

SA Waves overated (with stars) - Just another spot that gets 5 stars and "totally epic in the top 30". Comments like "really good on it's day" - jeez, the same could be said for just about anywhere. It's time you SA crew got out and about a bit more. 5 stars - bullshit!!
