Umhlanga or Ballito

Hi, we hope to visit here next February for a beach break for 4 nights. Which resort would you recommend ? We are in our early fifties and like a location where we can park the car and walk to restaurants, shops, the beach etc. Hectic nightlife not essential. Thinking of the Teremok or Coco de Mer. Any advice would be welcome.

Many thanks,

don't worry as I think the comment was lighthearted. I spelt Umhlanga wrong!

Just to add (spelling mistakes aside.....) that I am currently staying in Umhlanga on my first trip to Durban and its really wonderful! The shops, restaurants, beach etc are all walking distance, it's relaxed, easy and vibrant all at the same time. If you need anything you can't buy, Gateway Shopping Centre is a short drive away (a firm favourite with my kids as the weather right now is not beach weather most of the time) with everything there you could possibly need.

We're absolutely loving our time here, and I'm sure in February when the weather will be a lot warmer you would really enjoy it if you decide to come and stay here.

We stayed at Teremok Marine and was excellent! If you're staying at Umhlanga, then I would recommend there....you can go out and they come pick you up - brilliant service.
