Umhlanga Rocks Suburb of Umhlanga

Umhlanga Dream Holiday Destination - We as a family of five has made it a tradition to at least go to Umhlanga twice a year there is everything you can imagine from the lovely seaside strolls along the promenade up to the forest. Deep sea fishing adventure and the Sharks board. Everywhere is shops with everything from gifts to food you can never get bored. The nightlife is very exciting with lots of restaurants and bars some with live entertainment. So convenient to get there only 15 minutes from the airport.

Wonderful - I love Umhlanga Rocks as a destination because other than lazing or going for a walk on the beach there are so many wonderful little shops and restaurants to visit
