Property Information:

With stunning panoramic views of the Indian Ocean, en-suite doubles with their own TV, cozy dorms with self-catering facilities, a sparkling pool and a scrummy breakfast, come to Durban Backpackers On The Beach for some affordable luxury.

Situated in Durban North between the City Centre and Umhlanga Rocks, On The Beach is literally that - on the beach. Watch the waves break over the golden sand in your front yard, pop down for an early morning dip and search for shells as you unwind in this little bit of paradise

Close enough to everything you could possibly need; restaurants, banks, bars and the cinema and only 10 minutes drive from the bustling city centre what more could you ask for?
