We've visited Uhmlanga Rocks yearly since 1982 and are amazed with the continuous improvements taking place. Keep up the good work! The beach walkways are clean and we feel safe taking strolls mornings and early evenings.

While the town has grown, mostly inland, the old town centre has managed to maintain it's wonderful sidewalk cafe atmosphere and beachside shops. I hope the new mall does not spoil it and that the developers maibtain the theme. It's safe to walk at night and cars parked are safe. The promenade was clean and well kept

WE had a birthday party organised at this venue which included a show with songs from the 60s 70s and 80s. All went very smoothly and organised. Great fun enjoyed by all!

How can you be in Umhlanga and not do you daily running on the prominade. You had such a stressful day at work and need to take it out on you pair of Nike's. Running and listening to the sound of waves just make you jelous being a Gautenger and not having the luxury of haveing nature at it's best... More

Very nice place. The last time I visited, I loved it. Nice, clean, safe beaches with life savers and it is just a perfect atmosphere for a holiday if you like swimming the whole day.

A beautiful place. Safe, with beach, lighthouse, restaurants, hotels and shops. Lovely relaxed area. Pity we chose a very wet couple of days to spend here, but in spite of the thunderstorms, wind and rain, we could see that it is a lovely spot.
