Durban’s Golden Mile, KwaZulu-Natal

Durban Golden Mile is South Africa’s number 1 promenade, stretching from Blue Lagoon to Durban Harbour Mouth. The Durban Golden Mile consists of Safe Swimming Bays, Blue Flag Beaches as well as Hotels, Retail and Restaurants.

The sweeping waterfront promenade called the Golden Mile is a legendary Durban tourist attraction and a great starting point for a tour of the city. Long blond beaches lure swimmers, surfers, and anglers, while the bustling promenade feels like Miami Beach with its high-rise hotels, shops, restaurants, and flashy entertainment complexes.

You can stroll along the promenade or rent a bike or Segway. Besides the beach scene, top attractions along this stretch include uShaka Marine World, a wonderland of sea-themed attractions; Moses Mabhida Stadium; and Mini Town, a tiny replica of Durban with a miniature rail network, airport, and harbor scene.
