Umhlanga Always Delivers

A seaside sunrise and fresh ocean breeze, this must be heaven on earth.  No, this is Durban, a city that always delivers good weather, friendly locals and among the best variety of outdoor activities in KwaZulu-Natal. Just north of Durban lies Umhlanga and the family-friendly resort of Salamander with its spacious self-catering apartments, onsite pool, Jacuzzi and sauna as well as ideal proximity to Umhlanga’s golden sand beaches.

Umhlanga is a trendy, upmarket area that offers plenty of chic outdoor dining spots and bars – from the Gateway shopping complex, down to Umhlanga Village and further up the north coast towards Ballito.

Umhlanga has grown in leaps and bounds from its humble beginnings as a favourite seaside spot to include some of the best restaurants and dining experiences in Durban.

Some of the area’s most recent establishments and our top recommendations include:

Old Town Italy:
