The Sand Sculptures of Durban's Golden Mile

Flanked by luxury hotels and apartment blocks, the Golden Mile skirts the main beaches and the Indian Ocean. Besides the signs alerting beach-goers that the main beaches are shark netted and patrolled by life guards from sunrise to sunset, what caught my attention were the many interesting sand sculptures. As I walked down North Beach during a recent visit to Durban, I was amazed at the number of sculptures. Some were quite elaborate and all of them seemed to represent different aspects of South Africa and its culture. From replicas of Durban’s new Moses Mabhida Stadium to depictions of the “Big 5″, there was one right after the other up and down the beach.
