City Lodge is two roads back from the main North Beach, it is within walking distance to the golden mile and beaches in the day, at night I would say not. The beach front has restaurants but doesn't have the best restaurants etc, for that I would suggest Morningside or Umhlanga/Umdloti area, but not a bad hotel group and is close to beaches and stadium (can walk to stadium in day, not at night, although there will be lots of buses in this area wc time), there is a hop on hop off bus that allows you to hop on hop off from the Sun Coast Casino to each beach thereafter moving South. www.kimssouthafrica.blogspot.com

Hi Kim

Surpised that you suggest, during the World Cup not to walk at any time from the City Lodge to the Stadium. Walk along the beach front - about a 20 min total walk. There will be tens of thousands of fans there, and in all the street around, plus thousands of police and security.

Surely you won't be able to get a taxi or park any closer than this to the Stadium on match nights anyway?

Hi Vdc, I think that it is fine to walk in the day, at night will be fine match nights, but in between this I really do not know, however as you say security will be increased substantially so perhaps it will be ok to walk around the beach area at night. Ordinarily I would not walk from City Lodge to beach front restaurants or Sun Coast. Here is some useful info on buses for the WC in Durbs by the sea. www.kimssouthafrica.blogspot.com
