The Sunshine Coast covers the coastal route between St Francis Bay (south) and East London (north) in the Eastern Cape. The Sunshine Coast offers 500km of coastline with pristine beaches and coastal dunes and a sunny moderate weather in which to enjoy them.
African safaris to adventure travel, beautiful beaches and game lodges, to the rich historical sites and scenic splendour, the Sunshine Coast is a travel destination for the holiday maker.
Kilometres of unspoilt, golden beaches, rocky stretches and protected bays are lapped by the warm waters of the Indian Ocean.
The rugged coast offers dolphin and whale sightings and whale sightings have been recorded along the most of the coastline. The annual sardine run attracts a great number of predators causing a marine spectacle of note. Land based sightings are very good.
Port Elizabeth, known as 'The Friendly City', enjoys mild weather and scattered rain throughout the year. This, together with 40km of white sandy beach and calm, warm water make it ideal for year-long watersports. Wind-surfing, diving, angling, surfing and sandboarding are popular pastimes.
And there is plenty to do. The city is packed with museums, Victorian mansions, shopping malls and flea markets. Settler's Park in the city centre and the Oceanarium will bring you closer to nature.
East London is a port city with a unique blend of old-world charm and modern convenience. It's small, convenient and just follow the beach signs to the Esplanade and all the attractions can be found there. Some of the beaches are legendary amongst surfers.
Other seaside towns include:
St Francis Bay
Addo Elephant Park is a mere 80km from Port Elizabeth. Close to Addo you'll find Kariega Game Reserve, Amakhala Game Reserve and a little bit further Kwandwe Private Game Reserve
The Sunshine Coast offers you a holiday adventure of a lifetime.
