Port Elizabeth


The Friendly City


With 40km worth of unspoilt coastline, white sandy beaches and rugged shores, life in Port Elizabeth revolves around the ocean. The ‘friendly city’ is the gateway to The Eastern Cape and its seaside hamlets and game reserves and is also well-equipped with a bustling harbour and airport.

Water sports enthusiasts can have their pick of pastimes including windsurfing, sea kayaking, canoeing, body boarding and surfing available at any of Port Elizabeth’s beaches including their Blue Flag King’s Beach, a 1.6km stretch of golden sand neighbouring the harbour. Its warm waters, colourful kiosks, assorted restaurants, go-kart track and mini golf course ensures endless family fun. Dive into St Croix Island’s waters to discover its abundant marine life while keeping an eye out for the area’s large population of penguins and cormorants - all curious to see the bobbing wetsuits circling their habitat. 

If you can bring yourself to leave the beaches behind, take a walk along the city’s nature trails. What better way to tackle the task than by hiking in the Zwartkops Valley Nature Reserve or cycling the mountain bike routes along Baakens River? Adventure seekers will be enthralled by the rock climbing, gorge swinging, abseiling and paragliding available in the area.
