Drive to the Durban Beachfront via the N2 north, N2 south or N3 and follow the signs. If you are flying in, King Shaka International Airport lies 20 minutes north of Durban Beachfront. The best way to get around and experience the Durban Beachfront is on foot, chartered tour bus or taxi.
The best time to visit the Durban Beachfront is anytime! Summer can be hot, so don't forget the hat and sunscreen, and Durban winters are mild enough to take a quick dip on Durban Beachfront, and only lightly cover up at night.
Where to stay - Durban Beachfront offers a huge selection of accommodation, mainly in Durban Self Catering Apartments, or Durban Hotels.
Of course, like any big city, it is best to be cautious on the Durban Beachfront at night.
Durban is sometimes also referred to as Durbs or DBN.
Guests' trip to Durban City Centre :
"Our group of 6 arrived for a 10 day stay, looking for self catering accommodation in Durban beachfront area. Choosing the right accommodation in the right suburbs of Durban needed some local input.
We decided to stay in a self catering flat on the beachfront of Durban central. This is called the Golden Mile and consisted mainly of self catering apartments and hotels. There are also some nice Durban hotels one or two streets back off the beachfront, but I'd say that front row beachfront hotels is the way to go.
We had much fun on the Durban beachfront. We visited the Durban Aquarium in Ushaka and spent tons of time surfing and deep sea fishing. Speaking of Ushaka, the restaurants were great, shopping was great and we spent most of the day in the water slides and pools. There are plenty of self catering flats in the Ushaka vicinity.
We chatted to some of the Durban locals and they confirmed that there was very little guest house accommodation on the beachfront. Most of the Bed and Breakfast accommodation is on the Berea, which is only a few kilometers out of town. The Durban CBD is exactly that.........no self catering accommodation or Guest Houses here. Only shopping and offices - very little for action-seeking tourists.
The Durban City centre seemed a little scruffy and was apparently not the place to be after dark.
The Victoria Street Market was worth a visit as well as the old "Grey Street" shops which were all Indian owned and had some cheap goodies.
From our beachfront self catering apartment, we had glorious sea views and did a bit of cycling along the beautifully paved promenade. The actual beachfront area is kept pretty tidy (not sure about peak holiday season though).
Durban Country Club golf club is just down the road, and so is Windsor Park, the municipal golf course.
Will try to send photos soon.
Looking for Durban accommodation on the beachfront was almost a disaster.
Luckily we checked into The Tropicana Hotel on the Durban Beachfront because anything one street back or more looked "suspect".
The Tropicana Hotel was great, but next time we'll try one of the self catering Durban beachfront flats, which would have worked out much cheaper.
Durban seems to be more jacked up since the Soccer World Cup and the beachfront facilities are much cleaner....well done Durban
Last year we stayed in a Durban Berea Guest house - too far from the sea.
