Durban's Golden Mile

Durban's Golden Mile is the name given to the popular stretch of beachfront stretching from South Beach to the Suncoast Casino and Entertainment World in the north. The Golden Mile is one of the main tourist attractions in the Durban area, and the wide stretch of golden sands serves as an excellent destination for beach goers who make their way there to enjoy the sunshine and warm waters of the Indian Ocean.
