Durban North is a large upmarket suburb spreading from Durban's Umgeni River to lavish La Lucia in KwaZulu-Natal Province. Most of Durban North overlooks the Indian Ocean which is within walking distance from many parts. Gateway Mall in neighbouring Umhlanga, is a big attraction, as are two thrilling casino complexes - Sibaya just beyond Umhlanga and Suncoast "down the road" on 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, no matter the distance travelled to get to the Durban North Coast. Beachwood Golf Course in Durban North 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 and there are still parts of it preserved in the Mangrove Swamps, and the Umgeni Bird Park bears testimony to the number of birds attracted to the area.
