Sun and Sand in Port Elizabeth by Campervan

Posted on 25 August 2010

On the South Eastern coast of South Africa you will find the country's second oldest city, the beautiful and historic Port Elizabeth. If you've travelled the Sunshine Coast or visited the Cape, Port Elizabeth is a wonderful last stop for your South African campervan vacation or a great to visit in and of itself.

Once known as the 10 minute city, with everything in easy reach, Port Elizabeth's urban sprawl has somewhat surpassed those earlier time estimates, although the city manages to maintain a cozy feel. Construction and development is on a rise, especially following preparations for the World Cup, but the city is still charming. Port Elizabeth is great because you can find sandy beaches only minutes away from a bustling metropolis full of laid back folks interested in introducing you to the good (or "lekker") life.

So head to Port Elizabeth to enjoy the year-round mild climate, the gorgeous beaches and important sights like Fort Frederick, the Shamwarmi Game Reserve and Elephant Park. Scuba dive, wind surf or enjoy a sunset cocktail while overlooking the ocean, you won't be short on activities or enjoyment while in PE.
