A shout out to the municipality here. Such a wonderful a place to be for a few days and the promenade is a real pleasure to go for a stroll.

Safety is first
Feb 2021 • Solo
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 facilities.

It's nice to walk around feeling safe

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.

What a wonderful experience
Dec 2020
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!

Tragically Filthy
Dec 2020 • Couples
From the lighthouse moving south what a tragedy litter and plastic , so disgusting , The small bathing area is kept clean but that is it. How embarrassing that a top beach has been left to this. Heart breaking and unnecessary as if you can clean one piece why not the rest , a real eye sore. You did not want to walk along the beach itself

High class beach
Oct 2020 • Friends
Really nice beach if you don't want to swim. It is nice for walks and jogs but not the best swimming beach.

A pleasurable beach experience with all the facilities.
Sep 2020 • Family
Lovely soft beach sand and pretty beach. Not so easy to swim and the beach dips just after the wave line. Clean bathrooms and showers. Place to hire umbrellas and chairs at reasonable prices. Restaurants right on the beachfront and good coffee shops. We even saw whales in September!

Great for Long Walks and Excercises.
Sep 2020 • Couples
Lovely beaches with eateries close by. One can go on long walks or runs on the promenade right next to the beach. Very clean and really enjoyable.
