good place to have a holiday but not longer than 3 to 5 nights. The only bad experience was the dity beaches and streets and no control over taxi's scipping red lights as and when they want to.
If you don't have to then don't bother. This city is not geared up for white, independant tourists, feels intimidating and is not particularly attractive.
However, that said our 2 night stay was made enjoyable because we found the Boardwalk Centre and Boardwalk Beachfront within walking distance and enjoyed a couple of bars (one with live music), a nice steak meal and a fantastic fountain, lightshow. My husband played golf and I visited the Do kin Reserve and lighthouse but being on my own was advised not to walk around he city (for the Heritage Trail) on my own so options were limited. We were lucky enough to hear about a great show at the Amphitheatre at the Boardwalk, which was our second nights entertainment.
Very nice place to visit with plenty of things to do with-in the city. Lots of places to relax on the beaches and shopping in the boardwalk.
Will love to visit the city once again in the future.
The gem of the Eastern Cape remains very under rated as a tourist destination. Port Elizabeth has it all to offer.
Close to the very best game farms, steep in history and easily the best beaches in the country. Give it a try you will be pleasantly surprised.
