Umdloti beach abounds with every aspect of holiday-making and adventure you could imagine.
Umdloti, the Dolphin Coast
The name ‘Dolphin coast’ says it all. Whatever your holiday dreams are made of, few sights in life surpass that of dolphins frolicking in the waters or whales breaching in the ocean.
You’ll easily be able to tick dolphin spotting and whale watching from your bucket list from virtually any Umdloti self-catering beach house – just patiently peep out from your patio or balcony long enough, and you’re sure to catch sight of two of the ocean’s most majestic creatures.
You’ll be able to spot dolphins all-year round, while May to December is peak whale watching time. Thanks to the varied species of whale migrating or calving, there is no absence of whales in the other months, although sightings do tend to be fewer.
Horse Riding in Umdloti
Whether or not you’ve been on a horse before, don’t go home until you’ve explored the beaches and hilly mounds by guided one-on-one horse tour. Create stand-out memories by contacting the area’s equestrian centre, who are happy to inform of pricing and availability. Then retire to your Umdloti self-catering beach house and watch the sun go down – unforgettable!
