The beach is run by the Durban Surf Lifesaving Club, it is clean and safe and has many amenities to keep you and your family amused for ages. This beach is very popular for surfers, body boarders and paddle skiers and the promenade behind the beach is great for skateboarders too.
Just a little back from the beach and promenade, you will see a row of buildings with some of the best hotels and self-catering apartments that North Beach has to offer, with great views of the beach and sea combined, so it doesn’t get any better than this.
