Due to the town’s proximity to Durban, and its constant growth, a number of businesses have moved their headquarters to the more serene and upmarket areas. In a way, one could consider this area the KwaZulu-Natal version of Sandton – another area developed through relocations from the Johannesburg CBD. While the hum of activity and the excellent facilities found at most Umhlanga accommodation makes this destination logical for business travellers, those in town for leisure will have plenty to smile about too.
The Indian Ocean brings warm waters and sub-tropical weather to the lush coastline in this province, making beaches perfect for swimming, sunbathing, surfing and water sports. You could even dip below the water’s surface and try some scuba diving or snorkelling. The beachfront promenades attract joggers and strollers, while Gateway Shopping Centre offers fashion, fun, variety and entertainment for any shopper. If you’re keen to take in the scenic wonders, nature hotspots such as uMhlanga Lagoon Nature Reserve, uMhlanga Lighthouse, uMhlanga Ponds lie in wait too.
All in all, any time spent in this area is time worth spent – even if you are only able to stay for a weekend. What could be better than year-round sunshine, friendly people and beautiful surrounds after all?
