We always spend some time in Umhlanga during the year - and this time was due to Comrades Marathon. Umhlanga is a bustling Village with a lot of upmarket shops and restaurants, and a wonderful ocean to swim and laze around at. The vibe is great , the weather is generally good and although pricey, its a great family place to holiday at.

The beach was very clean when i was there in May. Not too many people around and we spotted a group of dolphins just offshore.
I did enjoy my walk there.
