More info about Umkomaas
Once a sleepy retirement village, the town of Umkomaas was transformed in the 1950s by the installation of an Italian-staffed and Italian machine-supplied rayon and cellulose factory. By the late 1960s, half of Umkomaas’ residents were Italian immigrants and their influence helped to grow the town into the thriving seaside resort of today.
The Zulu king Shaka who, after watching female whales with their calves in the estuary, called the river uMkhomazi (place of cow whales) and the town alongside took on the same name, albeit rather distorted.
But for the river regularly silting up, Umkomaas might have become a harbour port. Fortunately for vacationers and nature lovers, this never happened and the Umkomaas beaches and river can be forever enjoyed by visitors that flock to this strip of coastline annually.
