A favourite holiday destination with locals, Umhlanga’s beaches are packed with both locals and tourists in season (and often out of season as well, thanks to the temperate climate). The paved walkway allows visitors to explore the number of beachfront restaurants in Umhlanga before heading to the notorious Umhlanga Lighthouse.

This beautiful beach is known for its safe swimming waters, making it ideal for families with small children or for those that are wary around the ocean. It is no small feat to have achieved Blue Flag status, and Umhlanga Rocks is proud of carrying this esteemed title. This is only awarded to beaches that are clean, safe, aesthetically pleasing, and actively promote environmental responsibility and education. This is one of only seven Blue Flag beaches in the province.

Although relatively quiet, Umhlanga Beach is still popular amongst tourists, who love to stroll the long stretches (both sandy and paved) and see the restaurants and hotels perched along the coast. The Umhlanga Lighthouse is also in this vicinity, and remains a landmark attraction.

Make sure you book into one of the Umhlanga Hotels so the beach is right on your doorstep for an early morning stroll or swim before breakfast.
