The upmarket town of Umhlanga is known for its beachfront apartments, many of which boast picture perfect views.

Once a quiet resort town, Umhlanga is now a vision of suburban life mixed with commercial hustle and bustle. There’s nothing like sitting near the ocean during sunrise or sunset and letting the sound of waves calm you, whether at home or at work. It’s a peaceful, more tranquil kind of life.

One of the prime spots for property in Umhlanga is near the beach. These properties are some of the priciest, but also have some of the most breath taking views. Ranging from apartments in high rise buildings a stone’s throw from the ocean, to grand homes just a few minutes away from the beach.

Here are 5 sea views to take your breath away, in the Umhlanga neighbourhood:
