Nice walk along the ocean front. Rickshaw ride was enjoyable. Street vendor shops were interesting. I have gotten countless comments and compliments on the walking stick I bought. Mini-town was cute.

this is the long beach stretch at Durban which gives the perfect relaxation at a bar or coffee shop at the beach or simply walking along to recover from the city

Lovely on a nice sunny day. Just for a relaxing walk, or exercise it is very nice. Plenty places to eat as well. If you fancy a swim in the ocean as well its good. Life guards present. Lots of families, exercisers. If you like people watching as well its nice. Well worth a visit.

All the running routes should be like this one - fresh breeze, cheerful monkeys and beautiful views!

It is an awesome place to go for a walk, run, glide or ride with enough space for all. Great to see how well it is used to truly reflect the diversity of Durban.

If you looking for beach to stay all day, rent a parasol and relax, forget it. Huge waves strong currents, nobody go far out, and only the black stays on the beach.

What can I say nice and touristy by day, more than your average amount of beggars street stalls all selling exactly the same things, the next stall is the same as the last just arranged differently. Then by night it becomes something else, the local red light district where you have to get a cab from your hotel to anywhere,... More
