This seaside resort town has more to offer than most, having accomplished the impressive feat of offering visitors as many practical attractions such as a thriving business sector included – as scenic views. Hotels in Umhlanga add to this rare bouquet of attractions.
Home to the Southern hemisphere's largest shopping centre, Gateway Theatre of Shopping, Umhlanga is able to give visitors and locals alike a truly cosmopolitan experience by the sea. In addition to offering a world class shopping experience, Gateway also boasts a skatepark, The Wavehouse that was designed by Tony Hawk himself. Gateway has also catapulted the development of Umhlanga from a resort town, to a hub with everything from major car dealerships, to a great nightlife and, on its border, the Isimangaliso Wetland Park, a world heritage site.
Looking to connect with nature more? Umhlanga has a variety of nature trails available, ranging from beginning trails for the inexperienced whom simply want an afternoon in the fresh air, to more advanced trails for those ready for adventure. The most obvious natural attraction is of course the beautifully warm Indian Ocean that hits the shores of Umhlanga. Even if you are staying in Umhlanga for business, you owe it to yourself to spend a little time on the Umhlanga beach or promenade. Whether you are an adventurous one and spend a day surfing, or are more the type to sit contemplatively on the sand while the sun sets over the ocean, it will be time well spent.
