Attractions and Places to Visit in Port Elizabeth

On the Eastern Cape, Port Elizabeth, called "PE" by the locals, is South Africa's third largest port and boasts some of the country's cleanest city beaches. With more than 40 kilometers of coastline lapped by the clear waters of beautiful Algoa Bay, water sports run the gamut here, from surfing, sailing, swimming, and fishing to windsurfing, kiteboarding, and SCUBA diving. Travelers who prefer to stay dry can hop aboard a harbor cruise with the chance to spot whales such as humpbacks, Southern right whales, and Bryde's whales, depending on the time of year. But Port Elizabeth is not all about the sea. In the city's historic hub, the art and heritage trail, Route 67, celebrates the fascinating and sometimes turbulent history of this friendly colonial city. And in the surrounding area, private game reserves and the popular Addo Elephant National Park lure wildlife lovers with affordable DIY and guided safaris.
