Nudist/cruise area is to the north of the main beach
Durban is the beach capital of southern Africa, just not the gay-beach capital. (That would be Clifton 3rd or Sandy Bay in Cape Town). Still, here you are, so... Umhlanga is an upscale area with a large beach, 20 minutes' drive north of central Durban, with areas/something for everyone. Driving north from Morningside or central Durban, take the N2 about 14km north to Umhlanga Rocks. To get to the nudist part of Uhmlanga, follow the nature trail that begins near the parking lot at the end of Lagoon Drive. It has a busy cruise scene, but our source warns: "Be careful of some of the rentboys, who might steal from you."

    The beach is beautiful, wide and dune like with a lake and a little river, where the gay guys are laying, watching and cruising! You don't get bored, but if you are looking for hot action, it is somehow difficult there
