Durban Waterfront is one of Durban's most historic and significant urban quarters, but over the years it has been subject to a creeping blight that left it largely abandoned and vacant. All that changed with the 2003 launch of the Durban Point Waterfront, with over R1.8 billion being invested in this Durban area.

The Durban Waterfront lies in a superb location, and enjoys access to a range of modes of travel including pedestrian, road, rail and sea, and therefore has local, national and international connections. Much of the renewed impetus for this initiative in the Durban Waterfront is due to the implementation of the uShaka Marine World project, Africa's largest marine theme park lying on 15 hectares of prime Durban Beachfront property. uShaka houses a 1200 seater dolphinarium, where visitors are thrilled by dolphin and seal performances, retail outlets featuring fashion, arts and crafts and indigenous goods, and a fabulous selection of restaurants, including the Shark Restaurant situated in the themed shipwreck with a window into a shark tank. uShaka's famous Wet 'n Wild World offers excitement, fun and laughter for the whole family, on slides, chutes, tunnel ride's and swimming pools.
This 'must-see-must-do' Durban Point Waterfront attraction was consciously targeted at creating a development impetus for Durban Beachfront, which led to the idea of creating a unique Durban 'waterfront city within a city', in which a system of canals forms the central spine of urban re-development, and where the economic benefits of water frontage extend throughout the Durban waterfront area.

Activities in and around Durban Point Waterfront:

- Gondala Ride the Durban Point Waterfront canal, and taste a little piece of Venice.
- uShaka Beach lies directly opposite uShaka Marine World, and is a well known beach for surfing, kayaking and kitesurfing.
- Durban Undersea Club (DUC) is situated on the beach at Vetch’s Pier, and offers scuba diving, spearfishing, boating, surf ski etc.- If you are not a member, you will need an invitation to use the DUC clubhouse facilities.
- Vetch's Pier stretches out half a kilometre into the Indian Ocean, and is well known as a prime scuba diving spot.
- Whole Food Night Market open on the first Thursday of the month, where you can shop along the Durban Point Waterfront canal for irresistible speciality food.
- Wilson’s Wharf lies right on Durban Harbour. Choose a restaurant and sit and watch the yachts and tankers come into port.
