Blue Ocean Dive Resort

Aliwal Shoal, South Africa
Hotel Arena Inn

This hotel is the ’Grand Old Dame’ of the small seaside village of Umkomaas. Built in 1934, it has been restored to its original colonial glory, with a large ball-room restaurant, outside covered deck with grill and pub, and on-site dive centre.

Rooms are on the ground and first floors, all ensuite and comfortably furnished. Breakfast is served buffet-style from the covered deck, where midday and evening meals can also be taken.

Overlooking the ocean and the golf course, Blue Ocean is perfectly situated for easy exploring of Umkomaas and its quaint shops, restaurants and pubs. This is one of the friendliest and social dive centres in South Africa, where good times and great dives are always available; where friends and good memories are made.
