Liked: Awe inspiring views and kick ass coffee

Disliked: It is a little far out from durban. 30 mins drive but perhaps made up for by the character of the area and that things are less crowded here

Liked: People are really nice and making an effort to make you happy to have a nice stay.

Disliked: Warnerbeach, off season is a little boring...There is not so much todo in the town itself. Probably as a surfer you can be happy but I'm not and can not judge about it. The staff however was very helpfull to point me at nice things to do and having my own transport helped to still have a good time.

Hello Marcel,

Thank you very much for your comment!

We're glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay at Blue Sky Mining all in all.
In fact, Warner Beach is more for the people who love the ocean & outdoors and for those who would like to stay outside of Durban Central, exploring the City during the day!
However, it is a great advantage to have a rental car in order to get around!

All the best,

Romy and the Team of the Blue Sky Mining backpackers & Lodge=)

Liked: Lovely property on the coast just south of Durban. Good access to surfing, diving and other activities. Nice and quiet and surrounded by tranquil gardens. Highly recommend.

Disliked: 30 min drive to Durban, but I knew that before booking so no big deal.
