The golden mile is now actually about 10km with excellent family safe promenade along entire route. Walk, run, cycle, cart, skate, picnic, braai, swim, surf, fish, dine, party, shark dive, cocktail. All within a safe and secure environment.

Great walk/run/skate/cycle along Durban's Golden Beach Front. A place for multiple activities family-fun or just a casual stroll in the sun whilst soaking up the salty sea air.

I agree with the two responses already sent, that the best way is by taking a taxi. There is also parking available to leave your car while on a cruise. Trust this will assist.
