While the centre of East London may not be much to look at – it's mostly industrial and fairly drab – the city's bay-front location, which curves round to huge sand hills, is eminently pleasurable, and the eastern suburbs are well worth a gander, if only for the pristine beaches and neat gardens. With its airport and location at the meeting of the Sunshine and Wild coasts, East London is also a convenient transport hub.
