The Oyster Box is one of, if not THE best hotel in the Durban area. Its not in the middle of Durban, but rather right on the coast by the lighthouse in Umhlanga Rocks, about 15 km's north of the city.
The hotel is the temporary home for many famous and high profile people. With their open door policy, many locals come to enjoy a drink at the Lighthouse bar that over looks the Indian Ocean in the evenings allowing for an interesting mix of characters.
Drinks are locally priced, making it very cheap for foreign visitors whilst the price of accommodation and food, is based more on international rates.
