Beautiful beaches, good surfing/body surfing. Great Indian food. Even under apartheid the people of city mixed freely - very laid back life-style but very humid in summer, which means lotsa ice-cream & beer are essential for good health! Great view of the city from the University on the hill overlooking the Baym and several small & good nature reserves within the city, or within 40-60 minutes drive. Used to be an interesting Shark Research Institute near the beach. 2 good golf courses within the city limits.

When you leave the city, you find the roads are lined by huts .. the landscape is worth seeing, from the metropolis to the huts. There are nature reserves where you can get lost and where you frequently encounter animals and enjoy the AFRICAN sunset in all its beauty, the pain of Africa. I forgot to mention the beaches, they have no reason to be jealous of Miami.

The City has a lot to offer in terms of culture and diversity. The beaches are clean and enjoyable for the whole family. There is the odd incident of crime however, so being careful is advisable.

The city has witnessed 27 editions of the famous Durban International Film Festival. It is also home to uShaka Marine World, one of the largest aquariums in the world. Cricket lovers will enjoy the Sahara Stadium Kingsmead, where many famed cricket test matches and one day internationals have been held.
A popular attraction is The Golden Mile, a nickname for the sandy, surfer-crazy beaches dotting the Indian Ocean in Durban’s downtown area. Other attractions include the famed Durban Botanical Gardens and the Blue Lagoon Beach, which is Durban’s popular fishing spot.
... More /> With the port city being home to one of the largest Indian populations outside of the Indian subcontinent, curries are the order of the day here. Tourists should also ask for a unique Durban specialty, the Bunny Chow (a hollowed quarter loaf of bread filled with a curry of your choice).

The bustling metropolis of Durban (also known as the Gateway to Africa) is the second most populous city in South Africa. Situated on the tips of the blue-watered Indian Ocean and flanked by the sprawling Drakensberg mountains, Durban is the busiest port in South Africa, and one of the 10 largest ports in the world.
Durban is commonly referred to as the ‘perfect holiday paradise’ because of its mild climate all year round. The average temperature in summer reaches 25°C–30°C, with moderate high humidity. The port city counts approximately 320 days of sunshine ... More in a year, promoting dense sub-tropical vegetation.
The city has a population of 3.2 million people, of which almost one million are Indians having historical roots tracing back to their forefathers who were brought to the province to work in the sugarcane fields.

Great people, great climate and lots to do if you know were to go. Umhalanga and Balito is beautiful but the south coast is also very lovley. There are lots of huge shopping centers and yet also lots of out door activities not to mention the awesome warm beaches.

Guest House Owners are very flexable with their prices. You can usually barter for a good price for a long stay. However if you are a regular guest ask about their loyalty program. Recomend a friend to stay or post a comment.
