Durban has something to entice all types of holidaymakers, no matter what you're looking for. Here are some options for where to stay...
If sun, sea and sand are on the agenda, Durban's famous 'golden mile' is a beach lover's dream, with stretches of golden sand to kick back and soak up the rays. A huge array of hotels along this stretch will give you plenty of options, so you won't have far to go to top up your tan.
If you plan on being close to sights such as the city's stadium and museums, opt for a city centre hotel. Here you will also be able to admire the colonial architecture showcasing the history of Durban.
Alternatively, you may opt to stay on the hotel strip on trendy Florida Road. Here you can enjoy exploring chic boutiques, galleries, studios and restaurants at your leisure and you will also be within easy reach of golf courses and Mitchell Zoo.
If you're looking to stay slightly out of the city, the holiday town of Umhlanga Rocks boasts a blue flag beach, shops, and plenty of amenities, while areas such as Ballito are around 20 minutes away.
