Best Things Nearby:The beach at your doorstep and also walking distance to bars and restaurants.

Gate Way Mall

Durban has one of the largest shopping malls in the southern hemisphere. It has great stores, but what I liked the most was the activities section of the mall; they have a huge skate park design by Tony Hawk, and they also have a wave pool that you can surf, a climbing wall, and some other stuff. You will not have enough with only one day.

You can find all kind of arts and crafts, and I will tell you that you can find pretty much the same stuff at the flea market at more than half-price off, so if you’re looking for souvenirs, don’t buy them there (you can bargain at the flea market).
