We stayed at a hotel right on the beachfront, and we spent every day for 5 days on the Promenade. There were a few areas that were obviously dirty/smelled, but most of it was just beautiful. The weekends were crowded, but we loved seeing all the families playing in the grass, renting bikes and skateboards, and just strolling. A few people approached us peddling, but nobody was a nuisance, and we never felt unsafe. The easy access to fast food and toilets were especially important for us with young children. The promenade was the best part of our trip to Durban!

Avoid this area like the plague . Park car walk down to beach put feet in water come back car broken into . What was once golden has lost it's shine to petty thieving wastrols and there are far more pleasant places to go than this area . If you want crime this is the place to visit . If not avoid at all costs .

What a lovely promenade, we rode our bikes from Ushaka to Blue Lagoon and back. It was awesome and so many people out all doing different activities. Cycling, running, skate boarding, swimming, walking the dog, there is something for everyone. If you feel like just relaxing take a stroll to the nearest coffee shop and watch the people go by. The best thing of all it is free and you can stay for as long or short as you prefer.

So much fun, in groups, with friends or family, or on your own (day time only). Rent a bike or board (there is a bike rental shop in Browns road near Ushaka - or the green bike rental place opposite the stadium)... there are also a few cute restaurants the closer you get to Ushaka direction. Pet friendly (with leads). Perfect way to spend Durban's crisp, sunny winter mornings, or a late summer afternoon (take costumes and towels for a quick dip).

This has to rate as one of the best ocean promenades in the country especially on a Sat/Sun morning when the sun is out. There are hundreds of people walking, cycling or rollerblading.

It stretches from Blue Lagoon all the way to UShaka Marine world.

People seem to be running races and doing aerobics at Sunkist beach which adds to the atmosphere
