Lying on the famous KwaZulu Natal North Coast, Umhlanga Rocks is a tropical paradise - a place where jaded city dwellers are guaranteed leisure and enjoyment. This premier resort has been dubbed the 'Riviera' of the KZN North Coast for good reason - an abundance of fantastic holiday accommodation, fabulous shopping, and the Continental charm of outdoor restaurants in a laid-back village atmosphere. Glorious Umhlanga beaches offer endless opportunities for sun-worshippers, surfers and scuba divers who dive the coral reefs to see the spectacular marine life. Warm water and near-perfect weather all year round ensure that the main Umhlanga Rocks Beach buzzes with pleasure-seekers.

Visitors to Umhlanga Rocks beach can rest assured, as life guards are stationed at both Umhlanga Main Beach and Umhlanga Bronze Beach, with shark nets running south from Breakers Resort, to just south of Granny's Pool. Exploring the rock pools at low tide, finding oysters and mussels, and watching the ski-boats launch from Granny's Pool are some of the simple joys that this spot offers.
The popular Umhlanga O'Connor Promenade is a favourite with walkers and joggers, and along this route looming 25m above the shoreline stands the famous Umhlanga Lighthouse landmark - its distinctive red and white facade attracting thousands of tourists every year.
