Go for a stroll

Always great to go for a stroll along the beachfront. Just don't go out alone once it is dark. Don't walk with valuables.

A very special place to walk, jog, or stroll. The weather is generally wonderful and sunny. The beaches and promenade are well maintained and full of people at all times. The Golden Mile offers a wonderful variety of affordable small restaurants and activities. A haven for both locals and holiday makers.

We took a walk and cycled down the promenade - all the way from uShaka to Moses Mabhida stadium - definitely a must do if in Durban.

An facility that any city in the world would be proud to have. A paved and spacious walkway that stretches for 6km along the Indian Ocean from the Umgeni River to the harbour entrance. Lined with multiple attractions, restaurants and exciting street food outlets that will grab your imagination. You can include a visit to the aquarium along the way... More

The golden mile holds fond memories for me. A trip to this spot is really what Durban is :) Do take the time to visit the stalls and ensure you dip the legs into the Ocean

it is very good to take a afternoon walk or even walk early morning for exercise. Sometime when it is very busy the palce can be very untidy.
