Port Elizabeth

 Cape Town | Johannesburg | Port Elizabeth | Durban | Pretoria | Bloemfontein

The city, often shortened to "PE", and nicknamed "The Friendly City"
or "The Windy City", is located on Algoa Bay, and is one of the major seaports in South Africa.
Often overlooked by travelers in search of glitz and glamour, Port Elizabeth is probably South Africa's best-kept secret.

Fantastic weather and an enormous range of attractions make it a great place for a totally relaxing stay.

The beaches range from crowded, social and developed to long and deserted. Lovely old buildings reflect PE's past as an integral part of the development of the Eastern Cape and South Africa, and a host of
cultural activities will offer you an insight into the lives of other people.

South Africa's best kept secret
Port Elizabeth is a great place to base yourself for a while, as it is so close to many other wonderful destinations. You could do day trips to Addo Elephant National Park, Shamwari, the Baviaanskloof, Port Alfred, Jeffreys Bay or Grahamstown. Within the metro limits, there is fantastic sailing, windsurfing, kite surfing and great diving. There is also lovely walks, some fantastic mountain bike trails and good surfing.

You could even dive in the predator tank of the Bayworld Aquarium. There are some excellent golf courses, most notably Humewood, which is the only true links course in South Africa.
