Bordered by Berea and the Umgeni River, Morningside is one of Durban’s three most popular suburbs, situated about 2km (1.2 mi) inland from the Indian Ocean coast. Thanks to its laid back environment, tree-lined streets and excellent value for money, visitors regularly flock to this beautiful area whether travelling for leisure or adventure.
Morningside offers a variety of attractions that cater to all interests and age groups, ensuring that all who stay here have a memorable experience. For adrenaline seekers, the Big Swing at Moses Mabhida Stadium (1.5km away) features the world’s only stadium swing, which travels a breathtaking 220m long arc 106m above the pitch. However, if you’re interested in something a little less thrilling, Mitchell Park and Jameson Park provide the perfect environment to laze the day away. This green oasis is home to stunning and rare flora, aviaries, menageries, kids play park and the iconic Blue Zoo restaurant.
The beloved Stables Lifestyle Market is another must-see, boasting roughly 230 renovated stables selling everything from handmade crafts to clothing, books, artwork, delicious treats and more. Stables also has a pub for thirsty market-goers who need a refreshing beer or two. A trip to Durban would not be complete without a visit to its incredible coastline, and the Blue Flag Bay of Plenty Beach is one of the best! Whether hitting the waves, exploring the rock pools, fishing along the pier or suntanning, this stunning family-friendly beach is the place to be.
