Port Elizabeth Activities and Things to Do

Port Elizabeth – aka the Windy City, Ibhayi (‘the bay’ in isiXhosa) or the Friendly City – is a coastal hub in the Eastern Cape, located on the south-eastern coast, 763 km east of Cape Town, where locals proudly proclaim that many activities and things to do lies within 15 minutes’ drive of the airport. Life in Port Elizabeth is incredibly chilled, even by Cape Town standards. Plenty of activities and things to do and places to see. It’s easy to see why Port Elizabeth is called The Friendly City. The city has a very relaxed atmosphere and out-of-your-way hospitality. It must be all those hours of sunshine (apparently they get more hours of sunshine than any other South African city). So, for the historian, the bush-lover, the sport fanatic and even the adrenaline junkie there are a variety activities and tourist attractions to choose from.
