The body of a man was found floating in the water at a popular Durban beach, paramedics said on Thursday.

Netcare 911 spokesperson Chris Botha said fishermen on a pier at Durban's North Beach noticed a large object floating in the water shortly after 21:00 on Wednesday night.

Paramedics and a unit of the National Sea Rescue Institute were alerted and the body of the fully dressed man was brought to shore by the NSRI.

He was declared dead at the scene by paramedics.

"Details as to how the man landed in the water are still speculative and will remain a subject for police investigation," said Botha.

Botha said it was hard to determine the age of the man and paramedics believe he had been in the water for "some time".

Police were also at the scene.
