Port Elizabeth on the Eastern Cape Coast offers whale watching cruises to see Southern Right Whales and Humpback Whales. Often overlooked by travellers in search of glitz and glamour, Port Elizabeth is probably South Africa's best kept secret. The beaches range from crowded, social and developed to long and deserted. Lovely old buildings reflect Port Elizabeth's past as an integral part of the development of the Eastern Cape and South Africa.

A host of cultural activities offer an insight into the lives of other people. A visit to the cell in which Black Consciousness activist and freedom struggle martyr Steve Biko was held before his death is certainly an eye-opener.
Port Elizabeth is a great base for day trips to Addo Elephant National Park, Shamwari, the Baviaanskloof, Port Alfred, Jeffrey's Bay or Grahamstown.
Within the metro limits there are lovely walks, some fantastic mountain bike trails, good surfing, fantastic sailing, windsurfing and kitesurfing, and great diving. There are some excellent golf courses, most notably Humewood, which is the only true links course in South Africa.
