Areena Riverside Resort
Areena is a place to escape the hectic world, relax and rejuvenate. It is a place to reconnect. A place to become grounded. Areena is a wholesome place, a place where family values count. A place where children can wander around in safety. A place that evokes feelings of a time gone by – A time when there were no video games, no cellphones and no high security fences. This is a place where kids and adults can learn to play again, to get outdoors and establish real life friends.

Sugar Shack is spectacularly situated on a sand dune on Eastern Beach, literally within spitting distance of the beach, yet only a few minutes' walk from restaurants, pubs, clubs and supermarkets. We're also within easy walking distance of the inter-city bus station and East London's very own little Aquarium, complete with jackass penguins and performing seals!

The backpackers is in the original life-savers' building, which has a cool sun deck, big comfy TV area, (very cool) lookout tower, and clean, comfy, rustic accommodation. Check out the surf, tanned bods and the ships going in & out the harbour, or just watch the whales & dolphins go by.
We're a Baz Bus stop, or if you're travelling by mainline bus, the terminus is just around the corner. We can help get the best rates on car hire & assist with expert travel advice.
