Put your love on the line

The Funworld cable car on OR Tambo Parade is a surefire plan to let you cuddle up to your partner in a beachfront setting.

Sit down on a snug two-seater bench and admire the spectacular views of the bustle and the beach below while you glide across the city skyline.

Love is a rotating restaurant on the 32nd floor

As far as romantic legends go, Roma Revolving Restaurant towers above the rest. It is a restaurant revered by love birds for the romancing requirements it provides: great food, and 360 degree city views that are just as good.

The restaurant specialises in Italian cuisine, so share the last string of spaghetti Lady and the Tramp style. That’s amore.

Light up your lives

A romantic walk to the lighthouse along the promenade in Umhlanga is high up on the list for old-school romantics.

The best way to get the most out of the pier is to start at the furthest end and make your way to the lighthouse, taking time at each viewing point. After all, love is a journey, right?

Go airborne

Nothing defines love quite like a picnic on top of a mountain. BAC Helicopter Charters offers the date of a lifetime in the form of a low-level helicopter trip up the enchanting Umgeni River Valley, over the Inanda Wall, and all the way to the Valley of a Thousand Hills.

Upon landing, a charming picnic follows with an incredible view of the city, the ocean and the valley.

Board the love boat

We’ve spoken about the Durbs’ gorgeous beachfront, with all its amazing views. Well, why not sail right into the view? Take your partner for a sunset boat cruise on the Indian Ocean and enjoy cold bubbly, snack platters and pretty clouds. Get swept away by the current of love.
