The picturesque village of Umhlali lies inland from Sheffield Beach and Salt Rock, along the Dolphin coast, in the KwaZulu-Natal Province of South Africa.
Umhlali was once a railway centre for cargo trains carrying refined sugar. The sugar came from all the nearby mills from all the vast sugar cane plantations surrounding the region. The sugar cane fields remain but the old Victorian railway station now welcomes guests to enjoy a cappuccino on the platform instead. The nearby Umhlali River takes its name from the monkey-orange tree and runs out to sea north of Sheffield Beach.
The town is patronised by local sugar farmers and visitors wanting a country break. Peaceful surroundings, a home industry, beaches nearby, and a welcoming community makes Umhlali an excellent proposition for holidaymakers.
