Durban Golden Mile Tours and Activities

Durban Golden Mile
A stretch of white-sand beaches lined by a boardwalk on one side and the warm Indian Ocean on the other, the Golden Mile is what draws many travelers to Durban. Whether you’re looking to sunbathe, visit a few cultural attractions, or experience the city’s nightlife, the Golden Mile has it all.

The Basics
The Golden Mile makes a great jumping-off point for exploring the area. Many tours include the Golden Mile along with other Durban sights, such as City Hall, Durban Harbour, and the Durban Botanic Gardens. To maximize your time on the 4-mile (6-kilometer) waterfront, cruise along the promenade on a bike tour. And, be sure to get up early one day to catch the sunrise from the beach.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • The Golden Mile is a must for beach lovers and surfers.
  • The Golden Mile offers ample shopping, eating, and drinking opportunities. Stop at the local markets to pick up souvenirs, spices, and street food.
  • The boardwalk is accessible to wheelchairs and strollers.

How to Get There
Durban’s traffic is hectic—if you’re staying in the city center, the Golden Mile is best visited on a sightseeing tour. If you’re staying close to the Golden Mile, you can easily get around on foot, by bike, or in one of the popular Zulu rickshaws.

When to Get There
Durban’s subtropical climate and the always-warm Indian Ocean make the Golden Mile a year-round destination for sunseekers. Summer (December through March) is typically hot but gets more rainfall, while winter (June through August) is drier but warm enough to enjoy the beach and swimming in the sea.

What Else to Do on the Golden Mile
While you could spend all day relaxing on the beach, the Golden Mile has several other attractions appropriate for all ages. Start with a visit to the Moses Mabhida Stadium—an architectural wonder and home of the 2010 soccer World Cup. Next, check out Mini Town, a miniature replica of Durban. At the far end of the promenade, discover diverse marine life, animal encounters, and performances at uShaka Marine World.
