ABOUT RIVER & BEACH ACTIVITIES
Areena Riverside Resort is situated on the banks of the Kwelera tidal river, a mere 5km from the mouth of the river. You will find a lovely beach at the mouth, Yellow Sands beach, a popular and well known surf spot, easily accessible by boat or canoe from our family resort.
You will be able to fish from your Kwelera Riverside camping sites, enjoy canoeing on the river and take a 5km paddle down to the beach. Enjoy a leisurely relaxing river cruise to the river mouth on the Kareena, Areena Riverside Resort’s 30 person double decker river cruiser. The cruises are high tide dependant, so booking in advance is necessary, the office will be able to assist you with times our Kareena can go cruising.
Areena Riverside Resort has a slipway and jetties to launch your own boats and canoes. We have a no wake zone along the front of the resort, but a skiing section is available further down river, past the resort and the neighbouring farm.
Stand up paddle boarding on the Kwelera River as well as canoeing on the river are both available to enjoy from the adventure village. Life jackets are available for hire from the office as well.
Plan your December family holiday by the coast at this popular family holiday destination and get to enjoy both river and beach activities.
