Shaka Zulu and his fearsome warriors wiped out the resident cannibals in the early 1800’s, and ever since Umzumbe has been a friendly, laid-back community with beautiful swimming beaches, great waves and no man-eaters (unless they come bikini-clad)...

Surf Alert! Umzumbe has some of the best waves on the South Coast, especially in winter! The area not only produces great waves for surfing, but is popular for snorkelling, water-skiing and windsurfing too.

Fishing, diving and spearfishing in the area is excellent  with large garrick often being caught here. The shallow reefs are a crayfish haven (with a licence) and dolphins visit regularly while whales make their way past in July and September. 

The village itself is almost blanketed in a wild dune forest, with the unspoilt beaches being easy to access. But if you have to get off the beach, then head to one of the seven golf courses in the area, including the Wild Coast Country Club and The Selborne Golf Resort in Pennington.

For backpackers wanting to try their luck, they can head off to the Wild Coast Sun casino, just a 45 minute drive from here.

Mantis and Moon offer backpackers accommodation only 2 minutes walk from the unique warm water subtropical Blue Flag beach at Umzumbe.
