Umhlanga Main Beach reviews
Umhlanga beach is not like the other beaches in Durban. This is a well kept beach that allows woman to feel safe. There are convienant restaurants located along the shore with water points and sports.... more »
Security is visible and on the ball. At no point did we feel unsafe, and that's a peace of mind tha5s hard to find in this country. more »
Me and my family spend Christmas in Umhlanga and all beaches were closed. We went for a walk next to Umhlanga main beach. Wow so beautiful, the lighthouse, the bridge an the restaurants on the way! more »
It's a great beach, not too crowded off season and you can definitely capture some great pictures here. It could be a bit cleaner, but hey, when there's not so many excellent and safe beaches around this is 1 to be proud off.
Free WiFi, clean
This would have to compare to Cape Towns Camps bay. The promanade is very Durban with awesome tusks along the pier near the Pearls. Lovely, exquisite and pristine are three words to describe the Durban flare and culture offered.
Beautiful beach , lovely time there
Wonderful boulevard walking path way, meandering along the shore line. Seaviews are stunning, with the central 'whale bone' jetty a great vantage point.
