La Lucia surf report

La Lucia is situated North of Durban, just before Umhlanga Rocks itself. It is a quiet break, mostly empty of crowds with slighlty less consistent wave than the beaches closer to Durban. It is also generally a foot or two bigger than the breaks closer into town.

Parking is good except for busy holiday periods, with car guards to look out for your car whilst you are in the water.

The public toilets are well maintained and there are a couple of cold showers on the promenade.

In terms of food, there is a coffee caravan at the entrance to the parking but for other options Umhlanga Rocks itself has many options.

There is no localism to speak of at La Lucia, it is nearly always quiet or empty.
