Port Elizabeth in detail



There are some excellent dive sites around Port Elizabeth, with shipwrecks and reefs all over Algoa Bay. Expect plenty of colourful soft corals and stunning underwater topography, including huge pinnacles and gullies. Fish life is prolific and includes ragged tooth sharks, which are often found swimming through the network of gully formations at various dive sites inside the bay. Most sites are suitable for novices and experienced divers alike.


PE is not known as the ‘windy city’ for nothing; windsurfers and sailors will find what they need at Hobie Beach, 5km south of Central.


PE's best surf breaks are found between the harbour wall and Summerstrand, and at Pollok beach.
