I found Durban not the same place as I used to, when I used to take my children on holiday there many years ago. I found it a little dull and could do with some upgrading along the Promenade. Last time here was 5 years ago, and was dissappointed then the same as this time.

Vastly upgraded, failry secure with police around all the time and very well lit up at night. All in all the golden mile on the beach front is a nice place to walk or relax, eat or have a swim. The only problem is that there are alot of people that hassle you for money!

The sights: the ever changing tides, the crashing waves, the beach sand sculptures, the revamped and safe boardwalk. The craft and curio vendors. The rickshaw rides. The fun and games area. The skateboard and bike track. The endless beach. Ahhh the golden beach. Miles and miles of beautiful sandy perching locations.
Did I mention the poor choices of restaurants, the lousy fast food places. The beggars constantly harassing you. These few sour points left an unpleasant taste in our mouths.
On the whole, it was a good place to hang out for the day. The tourists think so too, there were zillions of the during the summer break

It is now clean and well organised and well policed. It will be even better when the Golden Mile expands to Blue Lagoon.

A beautiful stretch of beach and but the walk behind the beach is starting to look very tatty, bricks missing from the pavements etc and despite the best efforts of the cleaning crews rubbish is a big problem.
