Umdloti is the ideal place to unwind and enjoy the sunshine, beaches, rock pools and sea. There are a number of activities for the more energetic - the inshore reefs provide plentiful excitement for anglers, (surf, rock and ski boat) and for divers and water sport enthusiasts.
Water sports include surfing, windsurfing, paddle and jet ski-ing. Umdloti's primary beaches are shark netted and protected by proficient lifeguards. Known as the Dolphin Coast because of the many pods of these engaging mammals that patrol these waters, some frolicking in the waves, some surfing the waves, others performing acrobatics for out-and-out pleasure. Umdloti’s climate is often described as a “never ending summer”.
