Durban North is a large upmarket suburb situated in the KwaZulu Natal province of South Africa. Most of Durban North has the Indian Ocean as its view and with the massive Gateway Mall in neighbouring Umhlanga, this area is a popular choice for residents and holiday makers alike. There are two thrilling casino complexes - Sibaya just beyond Umhlanga and Suncoast on the Durban Beachfront.
The views from the beachfront make the Dolphin Coast a relaxation destination and the sight of bottlenose dolphins playing in the Indian Ocean is worth the trip here.
A diverse range of activities are available. Beachwood Golf Course is one of the finest Links courses in the country, the municipal Windsor Park Golf Course is just on the other side of the Umgeni, and a few kilometres from there is Durban Country Club Golf Course which often hosts the SA Open.
Most of this beautiful part of the world was once a coastal dune forest system. There are still parts preserved in the Mangrove Swamps. The Umgeni Bird Park is an amazing 'must-see' destination and is filled with beautiful bird life.
