“I live here!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2012

i live here and experience it everyday! the beach promenade extends from Ushaka Marine World in the South through to the Moses Mabhida Stadium in the North. Walk, cycle or take the convenient and inexpensive People Mover bus to get around! Relatively safe & usually some police are present. Experience the essence of Durban beach culture in a single cool walk! Oh and Durban's usually temperate weather is always a pleasure!

“Nice but...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2012

Its a nice beachfront with boardwalk. The sand is brown and the water is turquoise. Lots of people walking and riding bikes everywhere. There also seemed to be a lot of shady people hanging out just looking for the opportunity to rip you off...so beware. Did have a great time though without any incidents.

“bronze medal for you”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2012

a tight one lane road in either direction and one cannot really take in the sights and sounds while driving, as there is always another car right behind you trying to get you to move it faster.
The 'mile' is about 5 or 6 kilometers long, with scenery of beautiful beaches and boardwalk on one side with colourful vendors selling their crafts to the other side being high rise hotels and restaurants tapering off to a poorly maintained hospital on one end and a busy casino on the other end.
there is always ongoing construction and this does not make for easy driving either.
I suggest you find a parking and walk the 'mile'. an experience, none the less.
