Summer at Suncoast


For the best family festive fun this summer look no further than Durban’s Most Loved Entertainment Destination, SUNCOAST. The recent and historic redevelopment of Suncoast created a children’s paradise which now includes the famous and well-loved octopus water feature.

The octopus is set in a spacious and contained, child-friendly space complete with fish sculptures and is surrounded by restaurants to give families the opportunity to enjoy a meal at one of many eateries in Suncoast’s restaurant quarter, like La Rosa Mexican Grille, Lupa Osteria, John Dory’s, Spur, Tiger’s Milk and Mythos.

The Octopus’ sprinklers and sprays are set to different heights, volumes and times to make for a spontaneous and unpredictable water enjoyment.

For those who prefer some indoor fun or are recovering from a little sunburn, Suncoast boasts eight blockbuster movie theatres, showing all the latest International and Bollywood movies.

The Magic Company offers family arcade gaming for the young and young-at-heart with the finest collection of all-time-favourite and the latest release arcade games in Durban. It is light-hearted entertainment and a perfect rainy summer day activity.

Step out of Suncoast onto Durban’s magnificent Golden Mile, an 8km long promenade for walking, riding, skating or enjoying one of Durban’s famous rickshaw rides. The mesmerising traditional headdresses of the rickshaw pullers, together with their high jumps, are a delight for the whole family.

With bikes available, for hire, from numerous sites along the paved stretch, even little holidaymakers can enjoy an easy, flat cycle with breath-taking sea views.

Situated alongside the beach, Suncoast is an ideal base for some fun in the sand and surf, so do remember to pack your buckets and spades, to dig a few holes and build a sandcastle or two. When you’ve worked up an appetite, the bustling food court is easily accessible and full of tasty options for a meal, light bite and sweet treats.

“Suncoast is a children’s paradise from the octopus water fountain, beach, Golden Mile activities, movies, and family arcade games. There is something for everyone, no matter the weather,” says Louise Howell, Suncoast Marketing Manager.

#FeelTheBeat at the only place to be this summer, Suncoast.
