Hello and a warm welcome to Ansteys!


Popular with holidaymakers, business people, backpackers, beach lovers, surfers, families, sports and school groups, contract workers or simply anyone who wants to relax, unwind and enjoy a laid back beach break in a comfortable, 'beachy', happy, homely and friendly environment. 

Situated a mere 50 meters from the sand on the popular Anstey's Beach, Anstey's Beach is on the Bluff, a suburb south of Durban, and a quick 10-15 kilometre drive from the Durban city centre, uShaka Marine World, Suncoast Casino, the ICC and the Sports Stadiums.

We offer varied affordable accommodation options - from our fully equipped self-catering flats, to the more private upmarket air-conditioned rooms as well as our communal backpacker cabins - all in a lovely tropical garden with a communal swimming pool and the popular Heidi's Cafe on the premises above the swimming pool.  

There is a small fully licensed bar for our guests as well as a small beach and surf shop on site.

We don’t claim to be nor do we wish to be a 5 star luxurious resort, but we do pride ourselves on a relaxed and homely environment with comfort, cleanliness and a great 'beachy, home away from home' atmosphere that has many happy guests return time and time again.

Come and experience our beautiful unspoilt & lifeguard protected beaches, warm seawater all year round, good swimming and surfing beaches, kiddies paddling and tidal pools and amazing rock pools to explore at low tide.

There is nothing better than taking an early morning stroll to the beach, armed with a steaming cup of coffee or tea to watch the ocean come alive with the most spectacular sunrises! More often than not the dolphins will delight you with their playful antics and the whales are regular sights at Ansteys Beach.

Come back after a hectic day at work or in the city and relax by the poolside in our tropical garden or go for a late afternoon swim in the sea or walk on the beach, particularly at low tide when the rock pools are exposed.

Anstey's is unique in that we encourage and enjoy a great cosmopolitan vibe - international travelling backpackers, South African holidaymakers, business people, contract workers – all get along and it makes for a good mix! Come on over and join us – we look forward to having you stay with us!
Tash, Rudy, Michelle and the Ansteys crew :)
