A 6km long stretch of warm-water beaches offers a variety of surf and sun activities. Protected by shark nets to ensure your dip is not interrupted by one of the local Great Whites, the 'Golden Mile' beaches offer safe swimming in patrolled areas, pristine sandy beaches and excellent facilities. Once you've had your fill of sea and sand, you can retire to sip a cocktail at one of the many laidback bars or restaurants that follow the coastline or immerse yourself in some entertainment at one of the amusement parks. The wide selection of boutique shops, craft sellers and local markets cater for the varied needs of all shoppers. For a taste of Africa take a ride in one of the brightly decorated rickshaws which provide a form of transport and entertainment quite unique to Durban.
