Port Elizabeth

Set on the beautiful beaches of Algoa Bay, Port Elizabeth has an over-abundance of warm-water beaches, an estuary, rivers and kloofs. There are endless opportunities for surfing, angling, yachting, powerboating, and diving off the many shipwrecks and reefs. On the wild side, Port Elizabeth offers malaria-free viewing of a variety of species of game. For evening entertainment, the stately Opera House and Feather Market Hall stage live shows. Nightclubs, pubs, cafes, restaurants, fleamarkets, museums and art galleries all offer entertainment for the visitor.
