The Mighty Tugela river ends its course of 312 miles (502 km) here, at the Indian Ocean, about 52 miles (84 km) north of Durban, its mouth almost completely blocked in times of normal flow by a sandbar. The river is navigable only in the lagoon formed behind the sandbar.

The area near the mouth is known for a number of historical sites and events. The first European visitor to the vicinity was Vasco da Gama on December 28, 1497. He named a certain cape near this area Ponta da Pescaria, due to the number of fish they caught here. Portuguese survivors of the So Bento (Saint Benedict) shipwreck reached the river on June 1, 1554, and one of their company, the aged Ferno Alvares Cabral, drowned while crossing.

Near the John Ross bridge, 8 km from the mouth, is the site of the historic Zulu village Ndondakusuka. In 1838 Robert Biggar and John Cane fell here in the Battle of the Tugela when opposed by superior Zulu forces of Dingane. In 1856 a major battle, the Battle of Ndondakusuka was fought nearby, and 23,000 died, when Mpande's sons Mbuyazwe and Cetshwayo vied for supremacy.

About 10 km above the mouth are two historic forts, Fort Pearson and Fort Tenedos, built by the British in 1879 during the Anglo-Zulu War, to guard the passage of the river. Near Fort Pearson is also a fig tree, the so-called Ultimatum Tree, now protected in the Harold Johnson Nature Reserve. Here the British delivered an ultimatum to Cetshwayo's chiefs as an excuse for the war.

The John Ross bridge is situated on the old N2 route, since replaced by the North Coast Toll Road which passes 3 km from the mouth. The bridge is named after John Ross (real name, Charles Rawden Maclean), who at the age of 15 walked from Port Natal to Loureno Marques(now Maputo) and back to procure medicine. The John Ross bridge collapsed in the September 1987 floods and was rebuilt subsequently. Historically, the Tugela (in Zulu, Thukela, meaning something that startles) marked the southern boundary of Zululand.
