Heavy Inflow of People at Durban Beaches
It is new years and it is safe to assume every town is celebrating New Years. I have always known that on the first week of New Years, it is best to avoid the beachfront…actually, all beaches should be avoided. I am now on holiday in Durban, and I am shocked at how packed the main beaches are…I have never seen anything like this before!!
I worry that the beach is so packed…Children will go missing, people are going to be robbed or pick-pocketed or worse! Yoh…people really are on holiday today!! I still have to find a nice, not-so-intense beachfront and braai for the night 🙁 I took some photo’s as well as video of the beach fronts and surroundings (I will upload soon…could not upload due to none / poor data throughput from mobile network).
What I found quite shocking and funny at the same time was how these people were making their way to the beach front – they would move in big batches…I estimate like 200 people or so in each pack of people. They must have come via train, bus or taxi…or all of them!! Well I hope everyone stays safe today!! 😀
These are images I took outside my window, at the hotel I was staying in:
THE SURROUNDING STREETS
The streets behind the hotel I was staying at was experiencing heavy inflow of people…but not as bad as the beach front…
What I do like is that there are sea guards on duty…they are on their boats cruising around the ocean, saving people from danger…I saw one save someone from drowning, so I was relieved. One thing is certain, everyone wants to enjoy their new year at the beach!! 😀

Here is a short video clip, that I recorded, of the beachfront at Durban…
