The Sugar Coast’s sparkling seaside sanctum, Umhlanga Rocks, is where Durban’s urban explorers come for seductively warm Indian Ocean waters and spectacularly long stretches of beach. It might be the Pearl Dawn’s modernistic skyscraper or the iconic cherry-topped lighthouse you spot first but it’s the sensational coastline and salty ocean air that lure kite boarders to ride the north easterly winds, surfers to pull into the barrel of waves and divers to swoop into an underwater world of multicoloured coral reef.
Honouring its Zulu history, Umhlanga takes its name from the isiZulu word for ‘place of reeds.’ These wetland shoots grow along the Ohlanga River and lagoon in conservation hotspots where mangrove, hibiscus and Stone Age seashell midden keep company with pelicans, warblers and sunbirds. Threaded with beautiful walking trails and pierced with crimson sunsets, Umhlanga Rocks celebrates the riches of the coast.
When you want to savour the space and seek out hidden treasures, we can connect you with the people who have experienced Umhlanga Rock’s shimmering waters and beautiful beaches first-hand.
