south africa’s miami
Durban has been referred to as ‘South Africa’s Miami’, with its warm weather all year round, its outdoor lifestyle and its magnificent bathing and surfing beaches, which stretch from Durban harbour to the upmarket suburb of Umhlanga. Perhaps the most notable of Durban’s outdoor-attractions is the Golden Mile, an expansive promenade where joggers, cyclists, dog-walkers and surfers can enjoy early-morning or late-afternoon exercise and relaxation. The art-deco Suncoast Casino complex, which flanks the promenade, is another undeniable gem of the Durban beachfront-culture. It houses restaurants, movie-theatres, a casino and coffee shops, which make the perfect evening comfort after a day spent on the beach.
Culturally, Durban has a rich mixture of Indian, Zulu and post-colonial influences, which one can note in the city’s architecture and cuisine. Curries, seafood and fusion food are particularly popular at the numerous beachfront restaurants, “gourmet hot spots”, as well as the cafes and coffee shops which line the famous Florida Road and Helen Joseph Road. Some other notable attractions include, the Moses Mabhida Stadium which has hosted top-notch sporting events, and uShaka Marine World, a world-class water park and aquarium which offers hours of entertainment for the whole family.
