Richard's Bay is a seaport on the Mhlatuze lagoon in KwaZulu Natal province, on the east coast of South Africa. It is a busy port as huge coal reserves are shipped out from here. It is the world’s largest coal terminal. International yachts moor at the modern yacht basin.
Richard's Bay is the largest commercial centre in the region, and a springboard for tourists visiting the wildlife, wetlands, beach and cultural attractions surrounding the town.
The climate in Richard's Bay is sub-tropical and the golden beaches extend for miles along this coastline, 10 of which are Blue Flag beaches due to their safety, beauty and pristine amenities.
