“Durban has a fantastic paved promenade that extends 7 kilometres along the beach, from the Umgeni River in the North to the harbour entrance in the South. Great for walking, running and cycling. There are bike rental shops. You will encounter the cultural mix of Durban people using the promenade. It is accessible either from the beach or from the "stadium". The beaches on the south side have surfing schools and instructors.”
