Umhlanga Pier

Watch the sun rise over Umhlanga's famous "whalebone pier"

You’ve probably seen the iconic structure in hundreds of photos, and with good reason as it was declared the most beautiful pier in the world in 2014. Make sure to stop by during your North Star stay and judge for yourself!

Located a quick 5-minute drive from the North Star – the Whalebone pier is a perfect spot to watch the sunrise from. Grab a coffee and enjoy the sun rising over the ocean with an interesting mix of joggers, fishermen and the rest of Umhlanga’s earlier risers.
