Someone once said: “A day at the beach is never lost time. When the warm grains of sand touch our hearts, we know we are in the right place.”

The beach is one of the best places you can go to unwind, and the Durban’s Golden Mile offers the best beach. It is the place where beauty, fun, and happiness all come together.

It is the popular stretch of beachfront in the city of Durban, KwaZulu-Natal, including the promenade that runs along with it.

Apart from that, it boasts uShaka Beach, which has Blue Flag status.

So, pack your beach clothes and head to the Golden Mile.

What is even more exciting is that it offers a myriad of activities for all ages! So, whether you want a solo vacation or want to take your entire family along, there is an activity for everyone.

You can enjoy some leisure time at the uShaka Beach (where the uShaka Marine World is located) in Point Waterfront. There is also a lot of fun activities awaiting you at the Suncoast Casino and Entertainment World in the north, with a walking route that leads directly to Moses Mabhida Stadium.

Beyond this part is the Blue Lagoon beach, the mainstay of weekend picnics.

The wide stretch of golden sands, artificially separated by various piers, provides all-year-round opportunities for sun-worshippers to enjoy the sub-tropical sunshine and warm waters of the Indian Ocean. Because of its excellent beaches, surfers and swimmers have made this piece of natural wonder their haven.

Security is also a major priority at the Durban’s Golden Mile. This is why lifeguards and shark nets protect most of the Mile’s beaches all year round.

So, for some boundless fun, head to this incredible stretch of Durban.
