La Lucia is an upmarket suburb north of Durban between Glenashley and Umhlanga, in KwaZulu-Natal Province. With pristine beaches lapped by the warm India Ocean, as well as a corporate complex accommodating multinationals and large professional firms - La Lucia is a popular haven for holidaymakers and visiting business executives alike. A relaxing retreat for those who prefer a relatively quiet hideaway after revelling in the excitement of its nearby attractions, La Lucia is close to the Sibaya and Suncoast Casino complexes, Gateway Theatre of Shopping and uShaka Marine World. Golfers are spoilt for choice, for there are several excellent courses in the La Lucia vicinity. There is also an excellent choice of B&B and self-catering accommodation, with several top-class and award-winning guesthouses and lodges in La Lucia. Some of them are practically on the beach where one can watch dolphins frolic inshore all year round. For those flying in by light craft or charter, Virginia Airport is "just down the road".
