Umhlanga Rocks is the embodiment of leisure on Ethekwini's coastline. Vibrant, diverse and cosmopolitan, the stylish village of Umhlanga Rocks is famous for its position, views and progress, yet retains its friendly village ambiance.
Umhlanga, well situated on the KwaZulu-Natal North Coast, is conveniently just North of Virginia Airport and a short 20-minute drive from King Shaka International Airport and Idube Trade Port. KwaZulu-Natal's own Big Five Hluhluwe-Imfolozi Game Reserve is 2.5 hours by car to the North, and to the South the Transkei and South Coast resorts are just a 2-hour drive away. Heading West, the awe-inspiring Drakensberg Mountains and their berg resorts are accessible within 2 hours.
The fantastic profile of Umhlanga is growing fast, and includes apartment blocks such as Seashore, North Shore, Lighthouse Mall, Oyster Keyes, Oyster Rock, Oyster Schelles, Oyster Pearl, Pearl Breeze, Pearl Dawn, Pearl Reef and Pearl Tides, and the new and exciting mixed-use Pearl Sky.
The Hawaan Forest wraps around the Umhlanga Lagoon and Ohlanga River. The fisherman's paradise of Peace Cottage nestles in the seaside fringe of this unique forest. The Hawaan Forest has its own distinctive ecosystem: a stretch of land along the Ohlanga River where the call of the Fish Eagle can be heard as you walk along the shady Hawaan Forest trail, over the river which opens onto the beautiful beach. The Hawaan Forest has been developed into a sensitive, well-designed eco-development of homes with sea and forest views.
Umhlanga, La Lucia, Umgeni Park, Glenashley, Somerset Park, Sunningdale and Prestondale have a unique ambiance. The City Centre on the Ridge with the spacious Gateway Shopping Centre and the Umhlanga Hospital make this a very convenient and desirable place to live.
Durban, with its famous golden beaches, proudly presents its ongoing Point Waterfront development encompassing the wonderful UShaka Marine World, home to the Durban Aquarium, Reptile Park and water park. Umdloti and La Mercy, on either shore of the Umdloti Lagoon, are delightful beach resorts with rock pools, fishing, sailing and surfing. The KwaZulu-Natal Sharks Board not only keeps the swimming beaches safe but is also a place of interest for locals and visitors alike.
The North Durban territory is bounded by the Umgeni River in the South with the annual Duzi Canoe Marathon finishing in the estuary at Blue Lagoon. Driving North from the river you come across the excellent schools of North Durban, such as Northlands Girl's High school, Northwood Boys' High School, Crawford College, Danville Girls' High School, Fatima Girls' High School and Reddam College, among others.
