Meet South Africa

PPrepare yourself for the vibrant buzz in Florida Road that starts in the early morning when the sidewalk cafes on this bustling street form the meeting point for friends, colleagues and shoppers alike. The energy continues throughout the day and well into the night, when the street’s clubs and bars come to life, earning Florida Road its reputation as one of Durban’s top night spots.

Feel the electric street vibe and unique, historic architecture on this eccentric road as you explore a range of restaurants, galleries, boutiques, studios and bars. Florida Road has definitely earned its reputation as one of the city's trendiest streets, where people gather to shop, eat, drink, meet and enjoy Durban’s seemingly endless summer, and summer-like winter.

Did You Know?
TThe first municipal tramline in South Africa was laid in Florida Road and used on 12 September 1892, with horses providing the motive power.

SStretching from Sandile Thusi Road to Innes Road, there are dozens of carefully preserved historic buildings, including typical Edwardian structures that are more than 100 years old.

It’s a feast for the soul as most of the restaurants on this road are among Durban’s best-loved. Some well-known establishments are the Mexican-inspired Taco Zulu; and House of Curries, where you can take a bite out of the Indian cuisine for which Durban is famous. Whatever you desire, you won’t be starved for choice as there are plenty of exceptional restaurants to choose from.

WWhen the kitchens close, the bars and clubs come to life. Florida Road offers options for most tastes, so choose between the laidback and sophisticated or the loud and proud party vibes at venues that stay open until the early hours of the morning. Remember to take the same precautions as you would when you are out late in any big city. Boutiques like Gorgeous and The Smoke Shop are must-visits for fashion lovers, offering a wide variety of clothing including collections from some of South Africa’s best designers.

Art lovers can explore the African Art Centre, the Artisan Contemporary Gallery and the Elizabeth Gordon Gallery on Florida Road. There are also salons like Africare, where you can indulge in pampering spa treatments. Like the vibrant city of Durban itself, Florida Road is constantly evolving, so while you may not always know what to expect, you can rest assured that it will be well worth the trip.

The Victoria Street Market in Durban is unique in South Africa. Barrels of Indian spices and incense infuse the air of this flea market and a visit is essential for those who want to experience Durban's relaxed Afro-Oriental atmosphere and pick up some great bargains.
