So you cannot swim in the water directly in front of the hotel however the main swimming beach is a very short walk where there is a designated life guard controlled beach. I can't say much about the water temperature though, however Durban water always seems pretty good to me, no matter what time of year.

Hi,

Firstly May is winter in South Africa, but Durban's weather is not very cold during this time, so it is possible to swim in the sea. Secondly the main swimming beach of Umhlanga is only a few minutes walk along the promenade. Its actually a fantastic walk to do every morning. enjoy.

The hotel has an Iconic pool overlooking the beach and the water is heated on regular basis. I have seen lots of people attempting to swim however discouraged by number of rocks around the beach. Rather use the pool for swimming than the beach.

Regards

Hello - yes you will be able to swim in the gorgeous Beverly Hills pool. It may be a bit fresh, but worth it. The seas is right there too so take the plunge!

Have a good trip!

Yes, there is a swimming beach within strolling distance along the boardwalk.

The beauty of Natal is that you can swim in the the warm Indian Ocean all year round. May is lovely. June could be a little cooler, especially in the evenings and may be a bit windy in the afternoons. It is mid winter after all!

Swimming Beach is about 100 meters walk on the beautiful promenade. There are lifeguards and swimmers can only swim between flags. Be careful of rip currents and only swim where the flags are and when lifesavers are on duty from 8am to 5.00pm. Water temperature is between 20 - 21 degrees C. Be careful of the sun and use sun protection.

Staff at the Beverly Hills are very helpful and will show you where the swimming beaches are.

Their is also good security in Umhlanga. Enjoy your stay in paradise.
