Grateful we can use this amenity again

This is a great place for an extended walk by the sea – the safest stretch is between the Sun Coast Casino complex towards the Ushaka Marine World with a wide walkway so social distancing is easy there are a number of coffee shops and restaurants to stop and regain your breath as it is quite a long walk if you do the full stretch – the surfers are back as are the sunseekers and I happy to say this is area is getting back to normal – sorry I meant to say the new normal.

great place for a really nice long walk or cycle
Feb 2020
It was a brilliant idea to create this spacious area for people of all cultures and different walks of life to walk, cyle, jog and mingle. Good excersize and socially good for all. The ony problem that I do have is that there are certain areas where the is a very heavy stench of urine and excretement as well as huge amounts of litter including alcohol bottles in certain areas. This is especially noticeable in front of the Addington hospital. I noticed that during December the smell and litter disappeared and it was great to be able to walk or cycle along the whole area. Now that the season is over, its back to this nauseating smell and litter. Is it not possible to prevent this on a continuous basis. Not only is it unacceptable for our locals, we also have tourists visiting and spending money here and this does not assist in encouraging people ot visit our beautiful beaches.

Long relaxing walk
Feb 2020 • Couples
It is possible to easily walk from Suncoast Casino, past Durban Main beaches, past Ushaka Marine World onto North Beach walk, right up to the Harbour entrance. (Saw a cruise ship entering harbour) Very clean walk. Security Guards visible along along. Many restuarants and bars along the way.

DURBAN'S BREATHTAKING GOLDEN MILE
Feb 2020
The most beautiful breathtaking coast Durbanites can be Proud of.
The view as one strolls down the Golden Mile is breathtaking.
The joys of being one with the Ocean. Either you walk on the Beach or take a romantic stroll with a Loved One on the promenade - its a joy. Plenty of eatery along the way catering for every palette. A place to get the kids off the Couch and spend some over due family time. Swim, surf , walk, go fishing, just sit on the beach - there is something for everyone to do.
New promenade is your go to place for 2020.

Morning visit
Feb 2020 • Couples
We often come to this promenade and enjoy the walk along the beach. What a beautiful walk. It is showing bad workmanship at places, backhand contractors I suppose some brothers for brothers. The pools are empty and the amusement park gone to pot. We are so tired to turn a blind eye to neglect and fraud.

Durban's new promenade is WOW
Jan 2020 • Friends
Walking along the golden mile this morning was nothing short of breathtaking. Durban was lit up with glorious sunshine, glistening off the warm and welcoming waters of the Indian Ocean, with scores of surfers and bathers. The mood was chilled, exciting and inviting, all in one. Such are Durban peeps and the daily vibe. The new promenade makes for a nice nearly 6km walk one way, and it's perfectly suited for walkers, strollers, joggers, cyclists, skateboarders and their dog, the ideal pastime for any day of the week. Gotta love Durban!

Impressive Beach Area
Jan 2020
I walked along parts of the Golden Mile on several occasions during any stay in Durban. As I was staying at the Hilton about a mile away on foot, it was not safe to carry my camera from the hotel to the Golden Mile. If you are staying in one of the hotels along the Golden Mile or on a tour, then it would be safe to take photos during the day time. There is a high level of security, so one tends not to be bothered. There are several piers along the mile, restaurants, vars and outdoor swimming pools. The beach is good for sunbathing and the sea is perfect if you enjoy surfing. There are manned public toilets along the promenade. There is space for walking, cycling and rollerblading, and is a great way to spend a good hour throughout the day for a walk and watch the world go by.
