Seems like it goes on forever. It is clean, filled with activities and food options. I am from Cake Town, and the golden mile in Durban is really something of beauty and fun.

The Golden mile is beauty unparalleled. A walk on the promenade at dawn as the sun rises, in rhythm with the crashing of the waves on the shore is heaven on earth. The fresh smell of the air at this time in the morning is breathtaking. Friendly walkers, joggers and cyclists greet each other. Amazing.

The Golden Mile is a beautiful walk along the coast, which is absolutely buzzing with activity. Lots to see and do, whether just a leisurely stroll or you want to get the skateboard or roller blades out. Stop and have some food and a drink in one of the many outlets along the stretch. Definitely recommended.

Serene and beautiful any time of day. Taking an early morning walk just as the sun rises on the golden mile, you will be amazed by the amount of early risers taking a stroll or sprinting along the beachfront. Great for family or group picnics. surfers n swimmers.
