The facilities along Umhlanga’s beachfront are similar to what you may expect at other world-famous beach destinations. The clean, white sandy beach and warm water of the Indian Ocean waters beckons. There are great seafood restaurants with seating almost on the beach. Park on Lagoon Drive and walk down “Walkway to the Beach” (signposted). Some of South Africa’s most famous hotels are along this coastline – the Cabanas, Breakers, Pearls, Oyster Box, and the legendary Beverly Hills, Sol Kerzner’s first hotel. A beautiful paved walk meanders through a beach garden to your left, while a stroll to the right will bring you all the way up to Umhlanga Beach’s landmark, Umhlanga Lighthouse.
