uMhlanga pier ‘is world’s most beautiful’

Durban – Media giant CNN has just announced what almost everyone else knew all along: that the uMhlanga pier is the most beautiful in the world.

The latest accolade comes hot on the heels of CNN proclaiming that Durban was one of the most underrated cities with a host of wonderful attractions, all-year sunshine and a cosmopolitan vibe.

South African Tourism was contacted and it in turn got in touch with Durban and KwaZulu-Natal tourism leaders, who sent in a picture of uMhlanga pier with its distinctive whale bone structure.

The pier has previously won the South African National Award for Outstanding Civil Engineering Achievements.
