      Cheap Flights to Durban

      Find cheap flights to Durban from London, Manchester, Birmingham and Edinburgh. Durban is the third largest city In South Africa and the busiest port in Africa. Originally called Port Natal and settled by the British, Durban’s main draw is its fabulous beaches and great surfing. The city’s sandy stretches are along the ‘Golden Mile’ where excellent breaks and a water temperature rarely below 20°C pull in the surfers, snorkelers and swimmers. Behind the Golden Mile, hotels, promenades and flea markets serve the holidaymakers, many of who are from nearby Johannesburg. The city is home to the Surfing Museum, the modern uShaka Marine World aquarium and the trendy BAT centre with its restaurants and pubs. Durban has the largest Indian population outside of India, so curry is a popular dish, as is the local loaf, the Bunny Chow.
