Durban Tourism Info

Tis the season to be jolly, and in Durban, on the sunny east coast of South Africa, there is much to be jolly about this season.

Especially with the best beaches in South Africa - see our poll elsewhere (right side-bar) on this blog - much of the action centres around the glorious Indian Ocean and beachfront. There are also a few gay beaches, discreet, but plenty of time and space for just lying on the sand and soaking up some summer sunshine. Check out the
links to more of the December holiday fun lined up for Durban .
