Durban's Golden Mile is the name given to the popular stretch of beachfront ranging from South Beach to Suncoast Casino and Entertainment World in the north. The wide stretch of golden sands is the perfect destination for beachgoers. These beaches are well protected from sharks and thus safety nets are installed in the are. You can enjoy a long swim on the beach. The Golden Mile is also known as a surfer's paradise, especially South Beach is a well known safe beach for amateurs. Several attractions are situated on the stretch like Mini Town, uShaka Town, etc. Do visit the beach, you will not regret it!
The Golden Mile (actually closer to 4 miles, or 6 kilometers) is located at the eastern edge of Durban’s central business direct, and the city’s main railway station is around 15 minute’s walk from North Beach. Enjoy sea breezes along the promenade on foot, or take one of the extravagantly decorated “Zulu Rikshas”.
