We walked from Ushaka sea world to Durban pier and how wonderful it was. Beautiful views, lovely clean promenade with the toilets very clean security guards all over the place as well as the nice restaurants and bars. As Arnold Schwarzenegger would say " I will be back ".

I went strolling down the Golden Mile / Marine Parade ~ AnD what a change! So many memories buried in the sand and waters! Lovely and very touristy as main beach attraction to the tourist coming to Durban. Many things changed and replaced, or just gone! Swimming pool getting an overhaul - great, can only improve! And also so some... More

This long promenade is spectacular . It is wide,safe and easy to walk or cycle on. There are many restaurants and fast food outlets. My wife and I walk there regularly during the day with enjoyment and never any problems. Next to safe swimming beaches with lifeguards. Worth a visit.

Did a walk on the promenade with friends on Saturday 11 March 2017. The weather was superb and the Golden mile was buzzing with runners and cyclists and walkers. The Indian Ocean was looking stunningly beautiful. All including the swimmers and surfers were enjoying the friendly Durban atmosphere. Durban is a superb place to relax and enjoy and definitely the... More

Is nice - But you need to be weary of your surrounds and where you have parked your car. Can be a relaxing walk

One of the best things to do in Durban. Hire bikes from anywhere on the strip (we started at Moses Mabhida stadium) and rode along the flat promenade - no cars. Lots of restaurants and trendy coffee shops to stop at for refreshments. You can ride all the way from Blue Lagoon in the north to uShaka marine world in... More
