DURBAN beach users are advised that bathing at Durban’s South and Central beaches is temporarily prohibited due to the removal of shark nets to allow for the Sardine Run.
Municipal spokesperson, Mandla Nsele, said: “The closure is effective immediately and beaches will only be re-opened once the Sardine Run has passed through.”
