Umdloti is very user friendly stretch of unspoilt beach and the swimming area is patrolled by lifeguards and protected with shark nets. Long walks at low tide reveal a myriad of inshore tidal pools and the sea is a constant carnival of activity with the whales between June and December and the resident schools of dolphins all year round.
A short walk south down North Beach Road brings you to the Umdloti Beach Centre, home to two world-class fine dining restaurants, Bel Punto and Mundo Vida. There is also The Bush Tavern, the friendly local bar and restaurant, and Cafe Java, a bright open beach style coffee shop. Spuds Fish and Chips and Steers are great takeaways. If you prefer to cook, Farm To Fork is the local butcher and delicatessen.
If you wish to explore the area, The Junction Shopping Centre in Ballito is a mere 15 minutes to the north and Gateway Theatre of Shopping in Umhlanga 10 minutes to the south. Both malls have all the major branded stores with cinemas, restaurants and entertainment zones.
Sibaya Casino is just 5 minutes away for those more adventurous at heart. This vibrant casino is world class and has an assortment of restaurants and theatres.
With easy access to a number of big five game reserves plus the World Heritage Sites of the beautiful iSimangaliso (St Lucia) Wetland Park in the north and the majestic uKhlahlamba (Drakensberg) Mountains in the west, Umdloti is an ideal springboard to explore this remarkable Province of KwaZulu-Natal.
