La Lucia is part of Umhlanga - a leisurely but stylish village on the KwaZulu-Natal coastline, with a lively and cosmopolitan atmosphere. It is well-located, just north of Virginia Airport and 30 minutes by car from Durban Airport. Many properties here are quite majestic and the area benefits from regular redevelopment, most recently inn the form of impressive new apartment blocks and mixed use developments. A stretch of land along the suburb’s Ohlanga River is being developed into an eco-sensitive village with sea and forest views. The new City Centre on the Ridge includes the large, airy Gateway Shopping Centre and Umhlanga Hospital.
