February Theme day.

Without a doubt, Durban is know for its sunny skies and the beach. This area is well protected by the bluff to the south and the Berea to the west, with the result that there are very few days that aren't "beach days" in Durban.

So.... weather is good, surfing is good, swimming is good, walking is good, and even just sitting watching the waves roll in and out is good. It's all good at Durban by the sea.

Now you know why Durban is so well known, have a look at what you'd expect to find in these other cities around the world, cos they all participated in our February Theme Day.

Sounds like a great climate. It sure is a beautiful view.

sam said...

that is a classic Durbs shot, so tropical looking. but I bet it wasn't taken around Christmas or New Year, when it is normally seething with people! Are you enjoying the Cricket? Sad to see Polly go.

about now winter in Seattle is becoming just a little too much for me. "Almost everyday a beach day" certainly sounds appealing! Lovely spot!!

It's refreshing to look at a lovely South African beach on a gray day like today.

Cheers!

Absolutely stunning. I agree with Fenix, it's refreshing to dream about the beach and clear skies on a grey day, oops, I mean white day (it snowed several inches already last night!) like today.

Wonderful beach shot - wish I were there right now!

Southern Heart said...

That is stunning...I would love living in an area with beach access!

Jackie said...

Oh that is gorgeous - I could really cope with that kind of scene right now! (definitely NOT sunny and beachy in Glasgow, that's for sure!).

Denton said...

Great photo. It makes me want to be there.

Kuanyin said...

the beach looks very inviting.

Gwyn said...

The sunshine looks lovely. I sure could use some to defrost from all the snow we've been having here in Juneau, Alaska. Thanks for sharing your beautiful city.

I love this nice beach and shade of those palm tree. We are also known as sunshine city within NZ.
