Umhlanga is a residential, commercial and tourist city north of Durban. It is a bustling city with a wonderful atmosphere full of apartments and holiday hotels.

There are many things to do when visiting Umhlanga, whether traveling alone or with your family or partner. Do not miss the beautiful and safe beaches where you can surf or bodyboard, as well as snorkel and explore the rock pools.

A walk along the promenade is always very fun for young people and the elderly. Let your children play and roam the beach while watching them and strolling along the promises. There are always other people walking or running for both fun and exercise. The best times to go are early in the morning and early at night, when you will be blessed with one of the beautiful sunrises or sunsets of Africa and you can even take a look at the local dolphin school.

Don't miss the cocktails at sunset on the terrace of the recently renovated Oyster Box Hotel. With a view over the calm ocean and the lighthouse, watch the colors of the sky change as the sun sets behind you. A wonderfully romantic setting to say "yes I want" or even to ask this special question.

For an educational experience, visit the Natal Sharks Board. Here you can see how a shark is dissected in the nets to try to learn more about its diet and behavior. See a brief presentation about the study of sharks and how scientists have discovered and are improving ways to keep bathers safe in our warm waters. You can also read carefully through the exhibition that the Shark Board has to teach you even more about sea predators.

Just a few hundred meters south of the Natal Sharks Board is Gateway Theater of Shopping, full of 380 world-class stores, 18 cinemas, an IMAX cinema, 6 Nouveau Cinemas, a game house called Barnyard Theater, restaurants, Wave House , an arcade game, a skate park designed by Tony Hawk, rock climbing, gym, bowling, clubs, dodged cars, valet parking, Adventure Golf, science center and theme park, as well as a Nissan 4x4 track, will be very difficult for you not to find something that the whole family will enjoy. This mall is a thriving center of activity and entertainment, and competes with the largest shopping centers in the world
