Port Elizabeth Information

The city of Port Elizabeth is located on the south-eastern coast of Africa along the shores of Algoa Bay. The city is fondly referred to as “The Friendly City” or "The Bay" and tourists, who linger long enough to discover Port Elizabeth’s treasures soon encounter the refreshing and sincere hospitality from which the city has earned its name.

A superb value-for-money and family fun holiday destination, the city offers a diverse selection of attractions, scenic nature trails, historic heritage, magnificent wildlife, cultural experiences, countless water sport activities and 40km of breathtaking coastline and beaches.

Port Elizabeth, together with Uitenhage and Despatch, form the Nelson Mandela Metro, a convenient gateway to the Karoo, the Eastern Cape Frontier Region and the N2 coastal route to Cape Town known as the Garden Route with its well-equipped airport and harbour linking South Africa with other national and international destinations.

Port Elizabeth is known as South Africa’s watersport capital and offers activity throughout the year, especially wind-surfing and fishing. In fact, Algoa Bay is regarded as one of the best sailing venues in the world, while scuba diving is of world class quality with beautiful reefs, ship-wrecks, fish and colourful coral species.

The area also supports the most diverse array of vegetation types in South Africa as five of the country's seven terrestrial biogeographic areas are represented in the Eastern Cape.
