Port Elizabeth is located on the Indian Ocean about halfway between Cape Town and Durban. The city is beautifully set along the beautiful shores of Algoa Bay, making Port Elizabeth a Mecca for all beach and water sport activities. Across the bay is the wonderful Addo Elephant National Park. In and around the city there are scenic nature trails and wildlife experiences, long golden beaches, historic heritage and a warm sunny climate.
Port Elizabeth has a famous oceanarium on the seafront, colourful Edwardian architecture, and a fort, Ft. Frederick, from which no shot was ever fired. The old library, City Hall and Market Square are worth a visit , and there are several other interesting buildings.
