Areena Riverside Resort is situated on the banks of the Kwelera tidal river, 23 km east of East London city center, at the beginning of the Cape Wild Coast. The dream of Ed and Karen Rathbone to have a unique family resort became a reality some 30 years ago and soon grew from strength to strength. After a lot of hard work and dedication, the caravan park was voted South Africa's Top Resort 2004, after gaining public interest and became the hideout for those wanting to experience quality family time in the heart of nature.

Areena is a 4-star and AA Superior self-catering accommodation where you can wake up to the call of the Fish Eagles. Choose from a variety of luxury fully equipped self-catering family cottages, rondavels, timber chalets and double en-suite units. All our units are fully equipped for self-catering with linen and towels provided. The various units can sleep from two persons up to six persons per unit. Our five timber chalets are situated on the banks of the river and offer you unsurpassed views of the river from timber chalets and riverfront camp sites. Wildlife, birds and surrounding wild coast vegetation where cruises to the river mouth and beach can be arranged.

You can virtually fish from your tent on river front sites, and also park your boat along the jetty directly in front of you. And everyone loves to meet Abby, our friendly giraffe! Areena Quays Restaurant and Bar are right on the riverfront for your dining pleasure. Open from Wednesday - Friday 11:00 - 20:00, Saturday from 09:00 and on Sundays it closes after a delicious buffet lunch. At the adventure village, you will be able to take part in quad bike safari tours, canoe trails, pellet gun target shooting, zip-lining, paintball, archery and Segway safari tours. You may even get to have a giraffe interaction with our tame giraffe, Abby, who is famous the world over.

Access to the beach is either by boat, river ferry, or a short trip by car.
