Umdloti is the ideal place to unwind and enjoy the sunshine, beaches, rock pools and sea. There are a number of activities for the more energetic - the inshore reefs provide plentiful excitement for anglers, (surf, rock and ski boat) and for divers and water sport enthusiasts.

Water sports include surfing, windsurfing, paddle and jet ski-ing. Umdloti's primary beaches are shark netted and protected by proficient lifeguards. Known as the Dolphin Coast because of the many pods of these engaging mammals that patrol these waters, some frolicking in the waves, some surfing the waves, others performing acrobatics for out-and-out pleasure. Umdloti’s climate is often described as a “never ending summer”.

Umdloti enjoys a sub-tropical climate influenced by the warm Mozambique current which makes it a popular all-year-round seaside resort. Daytime temparatures are in the late twenties to early thirties and winter temperatures in the mid twenties. February is regarded as the hottest month (because of the humidity). Umdloti is predominantly a summer rainfall area although it can rain at any time of the year.

Less than 20 minutes drive from Umdloti is South Africa's busiest harbour city, Durban. Durban boasts international conference centres, 5 star hotels and restaurants, inexhaustible night life and modern infrastructure to accommodate to your every need. Several historical buildings and places of interest are to be found in this delightful holiday resort.

For the wildlife enthusiasts: In close proximity, visit Sea World, the Umgeni River Bird Park, Crocodile Creek, Crocodile World and Snake Parks. There are Game Reserves a little further afield. To the North you can step back in time and explore the Zulu culture and lifestyle in the land ruled by Zulu King Chaka.
