Thai is where everyone in the city converges to play. It is a very long, well proportioned and wide walkway, complete with swimming and paddling pools, restful seating areas under palm trees and plenty of bars and restaurants. It all faces the ocean , with a number of small piers which are great for watching the surfers. it is spotlessly clean and well patrolled by police so feels very safe

Durban’s Golden Mile offers an array of different beaches which has something for everyone whether is be Surfing, body boarding, body surfing or just lazing on the beach. Certain sections have warm paddling pools slightly in land from the beach which is ideal for smaller kids. There are restaurants all along the golden mile as well which ensure you can spend an entire day there if you wish.

we walked from Sun Coast Hotel to Zuluman Gondolas along the beachfront, the atmosphere was great, people, sea, food and laughter. very tiring so you have to take your time and rest in between, take in the views. however the beachfront facilities are not maintained. I'd say 50% is dirty. The food outlets are great with a wide variety. On the whole a beautiful walk for young and old to enjoy.

The golden mile is especially nice on a sunny day. Lots of eateries along the way and vendors that sell snacks and ice cream. Be careful at the swimming areas as it attracts big groups of people, and crooks seem to keep an eye on venerable targets.

The Golden Mile is my favorite place to walk and it has gorgeous views of the beach. There are many restaurants on this stretch that serve amazing food to weary surfers and travellers.
