About Doonside


The resorts of Doonside and Warner Beach lie just 3 Km south of Amanzimtoti on the Kwa-Zulu Natal South Coast.


Situated on opposite sides of the Little Manzimitoti River the towns share a protected swimming area near the river mouth. A magnificent Tidal Pool nestles in the rocks next to the lagoon. The pool is washed by the tide twice a day and the sea life in the pool is a young divers dream. The bottom of the pool is sand so painful cuts are avoided.


The name Doonside originated when a railway siding was built close to a house named Lorna Doone, after the heroine in the famous novel by R. D. Blackmore.

About Doonside Beach


Doonside Holiday Flats faces southwards and overlooks the Little Manzimtoti river lagoon and Warnerdoone beach to the south. Foliage on the river banks of the lagoon provides an abundance of bird life and shields the flats from high winds.


The beach is a short walk of about eighty metres from the Flats and is perfect for all types of beach and watersports. Lifeguards watch over the beach from their clubhouse lookout post from morning to evening. The shark nets are well maintained and we regularly host surfing and life saver championship events on the beach. Members of Warner Beach Kite Surfing Club provide good entertainment with spectacular displays of wave jumping and high speed surfing.


Baggies restaurant overlooks the beach and they sell hamburgers, toasted sandwiches, cool drinks, milkshakes etc. Because of the restaurant this beach has become known as Baggies Beach.


Members of Warner Beach Ski Boat Club launch their boats from the beach near the rocks. Some of the skippers conduct fishing charters for a nominal fee and a great experience and good catch is usually guaranteed.


Fishing from the rocks and the beach is very popular with the locals and tourists alike and some large fish have been caught in this area. A very well equipped fishing tackle shop is located near Baggies Restaurant.
