Johannesburg might be known as the City of Gold, but residents are generally envious of those who live down at the coast.
That may soon change, with the news that a man-made beach is about to be built in Jozi.
Midrand will play host to a massive beach that will be built at a cost of a whopping R9-billion.
This will form part of a new luxury residential estate named Munyaka, which translates to 'crystal' in Venda.

The development is the brainchild of Balwin Properties and Briefly.co.za previously reported on the reaction to one of their previous estates, known as The Blyde Riverwalk Estate.
Briefly.co.za learnt that Munyaka will feature 1, 2, 3 bedroom apartments and penthouses from as little as R799 000.
Units will feature kitchens inspired by Scandinavian design and will include various appliances at no extra cost.

Engineer News reported that the development will set a new standard for estate living - according to Balwin Properties CEO Steve Brookes.
Brookes said, “The lagoon at Munyaka will feature a landmark 50m-high tower with amenities including a 50-seater restaurant and conference facility with a view of the Johannesburg skyline; as well as zip-lining from the tower into the lagoon and a heated pool, fed by the lagoon.”
The news was shared via social media recently and Briefly.co.za noted the buzz that it created.
