“Treat yourself to a free Durban beautiful experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 November 2013

The golden mile is one of the better things the Durban council has done. Suitable for all ages, fit or wheelchair bound. Take a stroll, jog, ride a bike - your own or hire one, skate board and look at out gorgeous seafront. On a beautiful sunny day winter or summer especially early morning or late afternoon or weekend time it is a hive of activity with family or friend and even solo outing.

“The Golden Magnificient Mile.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 November 2013

The Golden Mile is paved with miles and miles of bricks.You'll see walkers,joggers,cyclists,runners and strollers and people in wheelchair.There are many African Curio shops and stalls.Bay of Plenty,North Beach,South Beach,Ushaka Marine World and Suncoast Beach make up the Durban Beachfront.Many International Hotels are surrounding The Golden Mile and many restaurants.Rickshaw Rides and Tour buses to take you on a tour.But when you are in public areas be alert and take necessary precaution to keep safe.

“Waste of money to create a Miami lifestyle”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 November 2013

It is good for many of the flat dwellers and holiday-makers. But the palms are out of place and the cleanliness is not well maintained

“Golden Mile - Durban”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 November 2013

Great for an early morning walk along the beach or esplanade, but this is muggers country by day and they are joined by rapists at night. Rather spend your holiday time at somewhere like Bolito or the Cape where it is safer. I was last there in 2008 and friends tell me the situation is worse today.

“Still in great condition”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 October 2013

The Golden Mile offers a lot of attractions to visitors whether it's the beach itself, the swimming pools, the street vendors, the rickshaws, the theme park or the restaurants.

There is a lot to do on the Golden mile and despite it being very busy everything is still clean and fresh.
