Sunshine Coast East


... is the 250km section of the coast that lies between Port Elizabeth and East London in the Eastern Cape area of South Africa.

As well as the beautiful beaches of the coast itself, the hinterland in this area contains some of the finest non-malarial private wildlife reserves in the country.

Amakhala and Shamwari ... is the area which contains the majority of the best known safari lodges in the region, straddling the main N2 highway to the northeast of Port Elizabeth.

Boesmans River ... lies a little further south and contains some further safari options, this time within easy striking of the coastal beaches.

Great Fish River Reserves ... is an area which lies further to the east and includes Kwandwe Reserve, which is perhaps the most authentic and high quality safari area in the Eastern Cape.

Grahamstown ... is a very pleasant hub which lies between these various wildlife reserves and has a well preserved historic centre and a renowned university.

Great Fish River Mouth ... is the area of the coast which contains perhaps the best beach lodge, the upmarket Oceana Beach.

Port Alfred ... is a reasonably pleasant coastal settlement with some superb beaches and coastal dunefields, as well as a range of modest accommodation options.

East London ... is more of an industrial port, so tends to be of less interest to most travellers.
