The Indian Ocean and the Umhlanga Lighthouse are the views available from this coastal property in Durban. The rooms are comfortable enough but the villas each have a private plunge pool and terrace. The fresh seafood and ocean views make the Ocean Terraces Restaurant a tempting choice.
The country’s third largest city is a different proposition to its sister cities. It is tropical and humid, and has spawned a varied and well-respected cultural and arts scene. There’s a large Indian population and also Zulu traders on the side of the streets. Escape the stickiness at Battery Beach, and watch the surfers swim out to catch a wave.
