BEACHWOOD MANGROVES NATURE RESERVE

The Beachwood Mangroves Nature Reserve is only open to the public on the third Saturday of every month from 08:00 to 13:00. Otherwise a visit must be arranged by appointment with the conservation officer. Beachwood Mangroves has the largest population of mangrove trees in the Durban area (there is one remaining threatened patch in the Bay). In the reserve you are sure to encounter the strange mudskippers . There are also thousands of fiddler crabs with their single large claw and an assortment of molluscs. There are 3 trails in the reserve, taking the visitors to the bird hide & to the swamp, where waders come to feed. There is a picnic site and thatched gazebo.Several interesting walking routes have been laid out. There is also a boardwalk incorporated into the mangrove forest, which was constructed with the assistance of Lion’s Club International. A footbridge crosses over the river along the path to the sea shore.
