Durban's Best Sunset Spots
Have you got a fascination like us at 30 South for the best sunset spots to catch the beauty that is given to us so freely.
Read on to see our top 4 sunset spots in Durban.
Lake Eland Game Reserve
Okay, so this one isn’t quite in Durban but it is still such an amazing spot that is often forgotten about. Situated just a short 2 hour drive from Durban is the Lake Eland Game Reserve. This is an amazing spot to spend a long weekend or just to pop out for a weekend adventure.
One of the amazing things about Lake Eland is the wide array of activities that the area has to offer. Lake Elands main attraction is the self guided game drives and the viewing of abundant wild life and flora to be seen from the comfort of your car. For people who are more adventurous there are plenty of other activities to keep you busy. The main attraction and best sunset spot definitely has to be the 80m suspension bridge. If you can stomach walking across the 80m bridge, the views of sunset from the lapa on the other side is amazing as the sun sets over the Lake Eland Gorge.
Nestled in the Valley of 1000 Hills between Drummond and Cato Ridge, Monteseel been named by many of Durban’s locals as one of the best sun downer spots in Durban. This spot isn’t for the faint hearted as it sits on the edge of the Monteseel cliffs which unlock unobstructive surround views of Durban and Cato Ridge. On a clear day, one can see the ocean, the ships in the east and in winter the snow on the tops of the Drakensberg mountain.
Durban’s ‘Golden Mile’ is a very popular stretch of beachfront, which includes a promenade for beach-goers to walk along. Locals will tell you that if you’re looking for one of the best sunset hot spots in Durban, then a visit to the Golden Mile at dawn is a must-do. Simply pop down in the early evening and take a stroll as the sun sets over the hills of Durban and watch as the sky changes colour. If it’s nice and warm, a drink or ice cream is in order.
Krantzkloof’s breath-taking scenery is a solid destination for sundowners or an evening stroll. The reserve is an amazing spot as every entrance features a wide range of biomes, from richly wooded Scarp Forests, Riverine Forests to the KZN Sandstone Sourveld Grasslands. With four different entrances, it can be hard to pick which one to head off to. Our favourite entrance has to be Uve Road by The Cellar as it has long beautiful grasslands that sit along the Molweni River cliffs.
