Durban, South Africa
The Golden Mile refers to the string of beaches near downtown, and is well known for its excellent surfing. The beaches are patrolled throughout the year by lifeguards and protected from sharks by nets. Along the waterfront are a number of play pools and playgrounds for children, and there is a long promenade lined with numerous shops, bars and restaurants, as well as the uShaka Marine World Aquarium.
