Enjoy a Relaxing Visit in the Lazy Seaside Town of Umkomaas, Gateway to the World Famous Aliwal Shoal

 Our guesthouse is situated on the Kwazulu Natal coast just 60 kilometers south of Durban.  We are in the lazy town of Umkomaas which derives its name from the Umkomazi river.  Umkomazi is the Zulu word which means Whale cow.  The river was at one time large and deep enough to allow whale cows to swim upriver to calve.  The Shark and Shoal Guesthouse has a magnificent view over the river.   We offer an ideal location for Umkomaas accommodation.   Our Umkomaas guesthouse offers guests a range of room options to suit all tastes.   This lazy seaside village’s claim to fame is of course the world renown Aliwal Shoal which offers magnificent reefs for scuba diving and especially shark diving.  Aliwal Shoal shark diving Umkomaas is probably our most well known attraction.
