One of the main attractions to Richards Bay is the industrial tourism available, a first of its kind in the tourism industry. Visitors can go on fascinating tours around the factories and plants, learning how they operate. The town is highly focused on industrial activity: 25% of the World's titanium, slag, zircon, rutile and high purity pig iron are produced here.

A variety of outdoor activities are on offer, such as fishing, kayaking, yachting, jet skiing, sailing and kite surfing. Water-sport enthusiasts can enjoy the waters at the Tuzi Gazi Waterfront, Naval Island and Pelican Island. Due to the regularity of the wind from the north-east, kite surfing is extremely popular. Swimming and surfing are also favourite pastimes, and can be enjoyed safely at the Alkastrand and Neawark beaches.
