Sunny weather and golden beaches await you on a vacation in Durban, a busy port city on the Indian Ocean known for its outdoorsy atmosphere.
Your itinerary includes some good beach time at Umhlanga Main Beach and Scottburgh Beach. Visiting Shark Diving and Umdloti Beach will get you outdoors. There's lots more to do: tour the pleasant surroundings at Umhlanga Beach, browse the exhibits of Makiwa Gallery, and test your team's savvy at Mindgame Escape.

Use Inspirock's suggestions to plan your Durban trip and find the best activities and attractions for your vacation.

Plan for somewhat warmer nights when traveling from Johannesburg in September since evenings lows in Durban dip to 20°C.
