Situated on east coast of the Southern most tip of Africa. Durban's is a melting pot of cultures with beautiful swimming beaches.
Durban is one of the 3 major cities in South Africa and is one of the top holiday destinations in the country. A bustling city without feeling like one. With year-round beautiful weather, people flock to Durban’s beaches no matter the season. With the Drakensberg mountain range only a couple of hours outside of Durban, you can be frolicking in the waves at the beach in the morning and be snuggled up in front of a fireplace looking out at the mountains in the evening. These pictures were taken in Autumn/Winter- what a perfect time!
Nestled on the East Coast, Durban is South Africa’s best kept tourism secret. With her balmy sub-tropical climate, it’s pretty much shorts and tee shirt weather all year round. Spend a day on one of Durban’s gorgeous beaches, as the warm Indian Ocean laps your toes, or travel 45 minutes outside of the city to watch haughty giraffe strut across the horizon at a private game reserve. A little further, and you enter the majestic realm of the Drakensberg mountains, a World Heritage site renowned for its beauty and grandeur.
Back in the heart of the city you can get caught up in the bustling throngs of a street market, or take time out in the Botanic Gardens, a lush oasis amidst the hurly burly of city life. With an array of cultures and people as warm as the climate, you’re sure to be made welcome in Surf City.

New York City has long been synonymous to skyscrapers, throngs of people both locals and tourists, neon lights, entertainment, and all things loud and hip. It is, after all, a metropolis, a melting pot of cultures - the city that never sleeps.

The Algarve region in the south of Portugal attracts tourists from all over Europe all year round. But what most people (luckily) don't know is that there is still a great unexplored part of the coast in Algarve, away from the masses and the cities. Come and see the Costa Vicentina, a diamond on Portugal's southwest coast.
If you want to spend a weekend near the sea but do not want to restrict yourself to the usual routine consisting of the hotel and the beach, I recommend taking a trip to Cesena and Cesenatico, two towns located on the Adriatic coast of central Italy. I did mine by combining sunbathing and cultural excursions.This was documented with my trusty Lomo LC-A. Have a look!

I prefer being outdoors whenever I go on a vacation at the seaside. For this reason, I always choose to stay at a campsite instead of a hotel. This year, I stayed at a beautiful one in the south of Italy. Here is a series of photos which I received a few days ago from the excellent LomoLab service, taken with my Sprocket Rocket. Have a look after the jump!
