SUNCAFE Awaits You Durban

Last week I was invited to the media opening of SUNCAFE at SUNCOAST.

I must say I was very impressed. This summer holiday café will be open till 10 January 2016.  It’s the perfect spot to take your family to. 

Beware this is a selfie rich environment.  I never saw so many people taking selfies, ussies and groupies.  So you might want to pack your selfie stick as well.

You can find it on the Sundeck at Suncoast overlooking the Indian Ocean.  SUNCAFE is an outdoor beach bar where you can also soak up the sun, sip on delicious cocktails and enjoy live music.

You can expect musical talents and DJ’s such as Wobbly and NAG, DJ Phumz and DJ Leleh, Funksoul and JNR B, F Easy and Teabag, DJ Meech and DJ Deepsoul along with pop sensation Eston.

There will also be competitions and prizes along the way.

The Suncoast Spa team will also be there for those who want to indulge in mini-spa treatments.
The café also features a children’s area and they will have great games and activities for the little ones.

SUNCAFE opens daily at 11am till 6h30pm.
