If you are looking for places to take pictures for your perfectly curated Instagram account, then look no further than these picturesque Durban locations. 

The Lighthouse

The uMhlanga Lighthouse was built in 1954 so it can warn ships of treacherous waters, but these days it is a welcoming sight for tech savvy millennials looking for a good place to take Instagram worthy images. The white lighthouse, with its bright red topside band, is a historic monument which is often considered one of the best lighthouses in the world. 

uMhlanga Pier

CNN voted the uMlhanga Pier one of the best piers in the world in 2014, which explains why it is a popular spot for photographers and bloggers. You can go for a jog on the beach before enjoying the beautiful uMhlanga coastline from the pier – all while clicking away on your phone!
