About Engel & Völkers, Engel & Volkers KZN North Coast
Nestled in the heart of KZN's Sugar Coast, lies the exclusive beach resort of Umhlanga. This area boasts a large variety of accommodation options, stylish shopping malls and all modern amenities. It remains a highly popular seaside resort, its wide, sandy beaches lined with exclusive hotels and apartment blocks, the beaches filled with umbrellas and sun worshippers, whilst locals enthusiastically walk the promenade at sundown. However, business has relocated here from central Durban, in a similar fashion to Sandton in Johannesburg. The residential aspect of Umhlanga too has grown incredibly. Gated communities and luxury estates have sprawled their way across the suburb, and in particular, Umhlanga Ridge, which used to be largely sugarcane, is now a much sought-after retail, office and residential area due in no small part to the incredible views over the Indian Ocean.
A stone’s throw away one can return to a lifestyle of relaxation and tranquility at the Hawaan Forest Estate. Discover a synergy of sensual architecture, subtly interwoven against a natural indeginous forest. The primary object is to create an environment where the experience of daily life is heightened by the engagement and interaction with the natural setting of the forest. Right next door in Prestondale and Izinga Ridge you can also find tranquility and the convenience of being close to all amenities.
The quaint town of La Lucia is situated on the beautiful Umhlanga Coastline near the suburb of Umhlanga Rocks, just a short drive from the hustle bustle and excitement of the Umhlanga Coast. La Lucia's main attraction is its beautiful surroundings and immediate proximity to the major centres of the North Coast and Durban. As quiet and peaceful as La Lucia is, it is home to a number of amenities, features and activities that continue to draw a steady flow of visitors each year. La Lucia’s beaches are pristine and tranquil. The warm Indian Ocean flows along its coastline making activities such as snorkelling, diving, surfing and swimming ideal. Tropical fish, exotic coral reefs, fantastic waves and warm white sand is what makes La Lucia’s beaches perfect for relaxing.
Glenashley is one of Durban North’s suburbs, which together with Umhlanga and La Lucia, have collectively come to represent one of the most desirable parts of Durban in which to live. North of the Umgeni River and the Blue Lagoon, which serves as the finish line for the exciting annual Duzi Canoe Marathon, the comfortable suburb of Glenashley is a place of family homes and secure complexes, excellent schools and a way of life that includes beaches, shopping malls and sunny days.
Just 15 minutes north of the city of Durban, on the northern side of the Umgeni River Mouth, is the upmarket area of Durban North. Most of this beautiful part of the world was once a coastal dune forest system and there are still parts of it preserved in the Mangrove Swamps, and the Umgeni Bird Park bears testimony to the number of birds attracted to the area.
