Umhlanga Rocks Suburb of Umhlanga

Vacation at Umhlanga Rocks - Always loved it, and will always return! Anything for everyone, young to old! Lovely beach, walking and shopping. Trip to the Sharks Board most informative. NEVER swim in the sea early morning or at night, because then sharks are at their most active!
