La Mercy is a suburb of the eThekwini municipality 35 kilometres (22 mi) north of Durban, South Africa. It is the location of Durban's King Shaka International Airport. It has four distinct areas - The airport precinct, the main residential area, a shanty town, and a beach-front strip of apartments along South Beach Road.
Although host to an international airport, La Mercy is a small suburb, with no shopping center or public transport to speak of; severely lacking in communal infrastructure such as pavements and public parks.
There is one under-utilised primary school (La Mercy Primary), two hotels (La Mercy Beach Hotel and Seabelle) with restaurants, two shops, and a community hall. La Mercy is however blessed to have three religious institutions, a Mosque, a Hindu temple, and a Jehovah's Witness Kingdom Hall.
