Casa Playa No. 5

Things to do in Durban in winter

Casa Playa No5 - Bar Area

Winter in Durban is a relative concept. The weather is still great, although many people won’t be interested in swimming due to the cooler temperatures. There are still many things to do in and around Durban during this time of year. Here are a few options:

Magical markets

There are a few fantastic markets that are frequented by the locals and are less known among tourists. Three of these markets are The Play Market, Wonder Market and Heart Market.

The sharks board

If you have kids, make sure you take them to the KZN sharks board to see the dissections. There’s also a real shark’s jaw in the foyer of the building that will give you a few great photo opportunities

Cooking and baking classes for kids

There is a Tots and Pots Cooking and Baking programme that offers lessons for kids. It’s a three week programme and a lot of the content is focused on healthy eating, so you don’t have to be worried that you will be giving your kids too much sugar.


The rides at Funworld are all reasonably priced (between R10 and R15) and it Is open until late during the winter school holidays. You can look forward to arcade games, bumper cars as well as an aerial cableway ride.
