The lively suburb of Berea bordering the centre of Durban in KwaZulu-Natal Province is a highly sought after area where old money is present and remnants of a colonial past still visible. However, academics and young execs are drawn to this partly residential, partly commercial suburb. Berea incorporates learning centres, chic uptown streets and green areas.
Both the University of KwaZulu-Natal and the Durban University of Technology are located in Berea as are the Greyville Racecourse, the Durban Botanic Garden and the Royal Durban Golf Club.
Shopping malls abound, the Musgrave Shopping Centre and The Atrium have all conveniences and facilities available and Florida Street is lined with fashionable boutiques, coffee houses, peppy restaurants and sedate art galleries.
Berea is a short distance from the CBD and Durban’s beach playground.
