Wonderful beaches

Golden Mile is a wonderful and peaceful and relaxing beach. Lovely views and great long walks on the beach. Over new year is very very busy and not recommended.

Wonderful place to enjoy the sea, cycling, running or even just a stroll with the family. Always relaxing and entertaining watching the people go by and families enjoying the wonderful promenade.

Since the 2010 Soccer World Cup the whole promenade was redeveloped and redone. It's now the place we love to be! Not to mention the great police presence on the whole Golden Mile. Best place to be for a nice walk or cycle. Best part of Durban.

A very pleasant walk if you have the time and energy. As well as the sea views there are the wonderful art deco hotels. The street vendors sell all sorts of crafts, bead work and carving are common place. The sea front hotels will welcome you for refreshments but there are also the usual fast food outlets along the Esplanade.... More

To walk with sunrise, sunset and anytime in between is so amazing and relaxing. The view and sound of the ocean is an experience in itself. It is safe with constant police and security patrols.

We often walk along the promenade... kids ride their bikes and mom and dad take a long stroll. Its beautiful, has quiet a few eating places along the way. Love the night life too, It is safe to walk at night but not too late.... you must always be vigilant..

the golden mile is long and will require one to consider the weather for that day as it can get a little chilly. carry something warm if taking a stroll in the evening. plenty of activities like skating, carriage ride, and snacks readily available for purchase.

This a long walk next to the Durban Indian Ocean with breathtaking views. Along your walk you will see some of the local arts and crafts, play parks for children . The beach has designated areas to swim and enjoy the beach. There are lovely gardens next too the beach for a picnic.
