My husband and I have been on holiday to Umhlanga Rocks for the past ten years on an annual basis (sometimes twice a year). It was very interesting to see the vast expansion in this beautiful town over the years. Glamorous hotels, resorts and apartments can be seen everywhere. Like other reviews mentioned there are a wide variety of restaurants... More
