Well worth the walk
Jul 2020 • Couples
Such a surprise! Beautiful upkept walk-way throughout the nature reserve. Clean grounds all over. Friendly park assistent checking vitals and takeing necessary Covid19 precautions and safety officers on duty. Birds in abundance and scenery beautiful but toilet not operational and needs repair. Well worth the walk through & the last stretch on the beach towards Promanade was a plesant undertaking. Will definately do this again on my next visit.

Peaceful

I really enjoyed visiting here. It’s not an all day outing, unless you take a picnic for the beach. I saw duikers, vervet monkeys and a variety of birds. I wish I had gone on one of the guided walks from the Breakers Hotel, but they don’t happen on weekends, and at 9, 11 and 2 (not 3pm as per info on the web). Follow the left hand signpost for the best walk!

Stunning piece of nature
Dec 2019
One of KZN's best kept secrets, this part of Umhlanga is absolutely breathtaking. I was impressed at how well maintained and safe the area is with guards at the entrance, Take a sun hat, water and lots of sun lotion coz you guaranteed to be here for a while, enjoying the fresh sea breeze and views that are amazing.

Pleasent walk with plenty to see.
Dec 2019
At the northern end of Umhlanga Promenade is the Nature Trail, the Nature Reserve. The first few hundred yards are a little underwhelming, but once walking on the walkway over the flooded pond / meadow, then things become far more interesting with bulrushes, some crowned with weaver bird nests.Further on we came across a troop of green vervet monkeys playing in the trees without a care in the world.

A walk in nature
Oct 2019
Not a bad walk through the trees. No signposts or directions. Once we arrived at the beach, we had to walk back the same way to get to the car park. Not much to see.

Gorgeous walk
Jun 2019 • Friends
It’s not often that you can escape the world without leaving the city far behind you but this is one of those special places where nature feels alive and allows you to pay homage to her majesty.
Safe parking, enough people to give you comfort but not to disturb your solitude.
What a glorious meander through the undergrowth! Cool and lush with varying terrain that our 3 year old was mostly happy to navigate ending at the beach (we kept left of the fork).
I’d definitely recommend a picnic, lots of lovely spots to stop and sit or end off at the beach.
If you want a real treat, eat on the way and go have a glass of wine at The lighthouse bar after you’ve earned it! (It will cost you R95 a glass but it’ll be worth it!!)

What a walk! - pleasant clean need - slippers friendly. Different plants and trees which you would not see in a "dry" environment.

lovely short walks

This is a really great place for a short walk. You can start on the boardwalk or from the hotel side and will walk over bridges, through forest and end up on the beach.
