KwaZulu Natal DestinationsGlenashley, Durban

Glenashley is one of Durban North’s suburbs, which together with Umhlanga and La Lucia, have collectively come to represent one of the most desirable parts of Durban in which to live.

North of the Umgeni River and the Blue Lagoon, which serves as the finish line for the exciting annual Duzi Canoe Marathon, the comfortable suburb of Glenashley is a place of family homes and secure complexes, excellent schools and a way of life that includes beaches, shopping malls and sunny days.

Glenashley serves as an excellent and quick commute for the businessman who doesn’t want to stay within the heart of the city, and needs swift access to the multinational corporates and businesses that have moved north of Durban’s old Central Business District (downtown) to set up business in the modern business parks with enviable coastal views. The Virginia Airport is virtually on Glenashley’s doorstep, yet another reason for staying here.

You’re close to the Beachwood Mangroves Nature Reserve here, on the north bank of the Umgeni or Umgeni River. The area is a natural haven and used as an education centre for nature conservation. Many a school outing is planned for the black, red and white mangrove swamp, it’s sea snails, creeping plants and magnificent bird life that includes the mangrove kingfisher and Natal nightjar, if you’re lucky.

Umhlanga’s Gateway shopping mall provides hours of entertainment and shopping and, if the beaches no longer hold an attraction for you, then the Sibaya and Suncoast casinos are both close enough for a day’s outing.
