Durban breakaway deals have become more and more sought after over the last decade. Especially for those looking to break away from the winter cold across the country. But, what is it about Durban that draws people to its shores winter after winter? Well, today we look at what makes Durban special, especially during the South African winter months. So, sit back, relax and let’s head to what many consider to be the surfing capital for a Durban breakaway.
Your Winter Weather Guide For Your Durban Breakaway
We think the number one reason that South African’s head down to Durban during winter is because of the weather. With temperatures averaging between 15 and 25 degrees with little to no rain, it offers idyllic t-shirt weather. Baring in mind, Durban is known for its humidity especially during the summer months. That’s why during winter you are free from this, giving you the perfect weather conditions for outdoor activities of which Durban has plenty. Couple this with sea temperatures that rarely drop below 19 degrees making a day at the beach in the dead of winter a given. If this isn’t reason enough for a Durban breakaway, don’t worry, there is so much more in store.
Leave The Crowds Behind During Winter
Now one thing is for sure, we all hate overcrowded spaces and every long queue that comes with it. That’s why Durban in winter offers all the perks of an ideal holiday without the overcrowded beaches that summer brings. So you can walk the Golden Mile, have fun with the kids at Usaka Marine World and even go Segwaying through Moses Mabhida Stadium without having to worry about long waiting times and extensive queues. On top of this, the prices are allot more reasonable. Now you can enjoy resort facilities without having to worry about being able to find a sun lounger.
Nothing Gets Put On Hold In Durban
While the rest of the country goes into hibernation, Durban remains open for business. What this means is that nothing closes for winter. So you can experience high season activities without the winter crowds. Now how is that for holiday awesomeness? This coupled with the beautiful weather gives you and the family time to experience the many parks Durban has to offer. So feel free to pack in that picnic basket and enjoy all the wide open spaces available to you.
