Gently set along the sun-kissed coast and beckoned by the warm waters of the Indian Ocean, Durban is a melting pot of culture, activity and adventure. The third largest city in South Africa, and one of the most popular, Durban is a holidaymaker's dream destination. The beachfront is a popular haunt for both locals and visitors alike during the summer, and you may have to battle the crowds for space on the beloved beaches. But never fear, if the beach is a bit overcrowded, retreat to one of the trendy restaurants and bars that line the coast. Have a light snack or indulge in a refreshing cocktail while the sun sets over the ocean.
In Durban you are also likely to enjoy a cultural experience of note. Here you will find one of the largest concentrations of Indians outside of India itself. A walk through the city offers an explosion of sights, sounds, smells and tastes. Enjoy traditional Indian cuisine at a plethora of world class eating establishments. A common, popular and delicious Durban delicacy is the bunny chow, a hollowed out loaf of bread filled with curried meat and potatoes. Definitely a not-to-be missed treat when visiting this wonderfully rich and diverse city.
