I ♥ Umhlanga Ridge

I ♥ Umhlanga Ridge

Hi, I’m Sheila from The Sandringham B&B in Umhlanga Ridge on the Umhlanga Coastline, KwaZulu Natal.

UMHLANGA RIDGE IS BEST KNOWN FOR being the perfect holiday destination.

GET YOUR PICTURE TAKEN AT The Sharks Board dissection show, the only one of its kind in the world.

THE BEST Indian Ocean PICTURES CAN BE TAKEN AT sunrise from our extensive deck.

OTHER HAPPY SNAPS AT the beach are always a pleasure to review.

WHEN THE WEATHER’S GOOD, I LIKE TO view the ships on the Ocean.

WHEN THE WEATHER’S BAD, I LIKE TO Gateway Theatre of Shopping, the largest shopping arena in the Southern Hemisphere, and it is within walking distance!

I THINK THE BEST TIME OF YEAR TO VISIT IS anytime that suits you, BECAUSE we have beautiful weather all year round.

MY FAVOURITE BREAKFAST SPOT IS on the patio at The Sandringham.

FOR LUNCH, I SUGGEST a visit to “Beach Bums” where you can sit on the sand and relax to good music and value for money food.

MY FAVOURITE RESTAURANT IS Mundo Vida in Umdloti, TRY THE seafood selection.

BEST LATE NIGHT SNACK FROM the Cape Town Fish Market.

MY FAVOURITE beauty SPOT IS Umhlanga estuary, viewing the birdlife.

Umhlanga Ridge’s BEST KEPT SECRET IS The Sandringhams’ awesome breakfasts.


FOR SOME CULTURE / LIVE MUSIC, I LIKE TO GO TO The Barnyard Theatre, which is in walking distance to The Sandringham.

TO RELAX AND RESTORE MY SOUL, I LIKE TO lie by the pool in the sunshine.

IF YOU’RE FEELING ADVENTUROUS, TRY Kite boarding at the beach.

MY FAVOURITE WALK DRIVE IS through the Hawaan Forest.

MY FAVOURITE sports SHOP IS The Golfers Club.

MY FAVOURITE bird WATCHING SPOT IS from the deck at The Sandringham.

IF YOU’RE HERE IN in The Chris Saunders Park, JOIN IN THE FUN AT the Saturday Craft Fair.

MY FAVOURITE CINEMA IS Cinema Noveau. CHECK OUT THE comfy seats.

MY FAVOURITE BUILDING IS Umhlanga lighthouse, FOR ITS history and life-saving function.

TRAVELLING WITH CHILDREN? A FUN OUTING IS to the Wave Park inside Gateway.

BEST CHEAP AND CHEERFUL OUTING IS to go to the ten pin bowling alley.

WHEN MONEY’S NO OBJECT, I LIKE TO treat myself to a day at The Spa in The Oyster Box Hotel.

THE MOST UNUSUAL THING I SEE HERE IS is the amazing sunrises.

MY FAVOURITE WEEKEND GETAWAY IS playing golf at one of the nearby courses such as the Mount Edgecombe Country Club.

WHEN I WANT TO GIVE BACK TO THE COMMUNITY, I save all the pull rings from cans and donate them to training guide dogs for the blind.

We are ideally situated for the new Umhlanga Business Park and all of its’ corporate clients. King Shaka International Airport is only a short, 15klm drive away. The Sibaya Casino is only a 5klm drive away.

I Love Umhlanga Ridge BECAUSE because it has everything!
