Durban's main beachfront, also known as the Golden Mile.


Durban is the largest city in the KwaZulu-Natal Province of South Africa. It is a very popular holiday destination for South Africans and foreigners alike, partly for its array of tourist attractions and entertainment venues but primarily because of its sub-tropical climate and beaches. The main tourism activity in Durban is spending time on the beach.

Umhlanga Rocks

Umhlanga Rocks in KwaZulu-Natal is a very popular medium-sized beach resort town, which for all practical purposes is part of greater Durban but has a much more laid-back family atmosphere. The town has hotels and holiday apartment blocks right on the beach, as well as the huge Gateway Mall a few kilometres inland.
