The pier and paved walkways just off the beach makes it possible to be at the ocean without being dressed to swim.

Along the promenade at Umhlanga Rocks, you can take a walk above the ocean. Can be very windy, but an exciting experience for children as you walk above the breakers. Nice view of Umhlanga Rocks, Durban, ships at sea, etc. Lit up at night.
