Port Grosvenor is situated on Lwambasi Bay where two rival traders attempted to establish a port for Pondoland in 1885. The undertaking was doomed to failure but the spot stayed in the news as numerous attempts were made to salvage the so-called treasures of the “Grosvenor”, a ship that sank here in 1782. The legend that the Grosvenor was laden with treasure, including the famous Peacock Throne of India, persisted, even though nothing of value was ever found. Large swells and strong currents make diving here very difficult.
