With a fine location at the southern end of Durban’s Golden Mile of beaches, uShaka Beach on the Point Waterfront is a relatively sheltered stretch of glorious golden sands with direct access to the uShaka Marine World theme park that backs on to it.
Technically one of the free to access parts of the park, uShaka Beach is also one of Durban’s family-friendly beaches. It boasts a whole series of organised activities during the peak months of December to March (South Africa’s summer), while dolphins and whales can be spotted between June and December.
Surfers, kite surfers, and kayakers flock to uShaka Beach all year round, with it being a good choice for beginners on a surfboard. There’s also a large pier leading out over the Indian Ocean, at the end of which is a stylish bar-restaurant offering excellent ocean views.
