“Average Destination”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

The beachfront in Durban could certainly be better. They recently upgraded the beachfront for the soccer World Cup, but alas, that is where it has ended. On a Sunday morning you can have a decent walk along the beach front as there are many people and you would feel safe but I would not recommend that you walk the area at night time. I live in Durban.

“Lovely beach front”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

A very well-kept sea front area, with plenty of bars and eateries, and most in good taste. Watching the waves was impressive.

“Indian Ocean hot spot”
Reviewed May 27, 2013

If you want to get a feel of the Indian Ocean, the Golden Mile is the place to do it. I wouldn't suggest walking it at night, but from sunrise to sunset the golden mile has lots to offer. You'll find snack spots, places to grab full meals or even just a quick drink. It is well kept and always very clean.

“Lovely waterfront”
Reviewed May 27, 2013

Not sure what we expected but the waterfront definitely exceeded our expectations. We stayed in a hotel along the boardwalk and had a great view down to all the activity. But we also took advantage of it with walks the entire length. How fortunate for a city to have such a well planned area - yes a few vendors/market, and a lunch we had along the walk was only so-so, but all in all we really enjoyed staying here.

“Clear your head”
Reviewed May 25, 2013

Beautiful, safe place to have a decent length walk and clear your head after a hard day's work! Lots of places to stop along the way for a coffee.
