Port Elizabeth is one of those places that you either love or hate. Known as the friendly city, and the windy city, I found that the latter is the only true name for it. I lived here for 5 years and hated the first 3 years. Then I decided that if I did not pull myself together, I would be miserable for a long, long time. It is a nice city to go for vacation with lots to offer the traveler.
PE is one of South Africa's best beach holiday destinations, with 40km of unspoiled coastline — mostly golden sandy beaches renowned across the world. Summer stretches from October to April, with an average temperature maximum of 25°C throughout January to March.
Algoa Bay is Africa’s water sport capital. There’s yachting and boat cruises, windsurfing, jet skiing and diving. The Bay is one of the best sailing waters in the world. Scuba diving is of world-class quality with great reefs, plenty of shipwrecks, fish and colorful coral.
You mustn’t miss the magnificent wild game viewing in malaria-free game reserves. Within less than an hour’s drive of Port Elizabeth you can see the Big Five (elephant, rhino, buffalo, lion and leopard) and many other species.
