Blue Sky Mining is a year round oasis and a leisure lover’s paradise! We boast one of the most breathtaking panoramic views of the Indian Ocean, nestled in a beautiful subtropical garden, complete with rock pools. For sunny skies, azure waters beckoning with enthralling activities and heavenly peaceful surroundings, venture to the beautiful seaside town of Warner Beach situated just a short walk away from unspoilt sandy beaches which lay directly in front of us and mere minutes from Amanzimtoti, Durban. Accommodation: We have an array of unique, clean, comfortable and affordable options available to suit your accommodation needs. These range from dormitory-style rooms fitted with shower and toilet to gorgeous twin / double en-suite rooms. All rooms are serviced daily guaranteeing a relaxed stay. So, whether you’re a backpacker, sports-person, holidaymaker, volunteer or even on a business trip, we’ll have something just right for you!
