Warmed by the Indian Ocean, Umhlanga sizzles in summer and has wonderfully mild winters, but it owes its reputation as a hot spot to far more than its magnificent climate.
It is 20 minutes' drive north of Durban, and is the coastal playground of the jetset, boasting a wondrous promenade, pavement cafés and an addictively cool, laid back feel.
