Escape to Umhlanga Rocks where warm holiday weather is all year round. Pack boardshorts, costumes, slops, and a light sweater for when the temperature drops to below 20 degrees, and enjoy a tranquil seaside break in this bustling coastal town.
Visitors love Umhlanga Rocks because holidays are a mix of leisure and adventure-driven activities. Sun-worshippers can easily spend hours on the beach swimming in the temperate waters, tanning, playing volleyball and other games, reading books, building sandcastles, indulging in ice creams and enjoying picnics. The Umhlanga coastline stretches for miles with beaches along the strip spreading throughout Umhlanga itself, La Lucia, Mount Edgecombe and Umdloti.
Food lovers can have their taste buds tantalised at the area’s top-rated restaurants. For authentic Portuguese cuisine, visit Adega. From red meats to plant-based dishes, diners can enjoy delicious meals originating from Portugal. If you enjoy a juicy steak, you can’t go wrong at Butcher's Block, which specialises in AAA-grade meats aged to perfection.
Go on an outing to uShaka Marine World, Durban’s number one entertainment destination. From viewing the colourful and diverse marine life and snorkelling in fish tanks at the aquarium, to having fun on the slides at Wet n Wild, people of all ages can find an activity they enjoy.
Experience KZN from another angle and within the confines of a room, where your only means of escape is to crack codes and clues and decipher puzzles. While this might sound terrifying if you’re claustrophobic, the reality at Mindgame Escape is that you’ll only be stuck in the room for 60 minutes, and it’s good fun! You and a partner are required to put your thinking caps on and work together, and, most importantly, have fun on this unique experience!
