Port Elizabeth - Make yourself at home in the Windy City

With beautiful beaches, lush green landscapes and friendly people there is not much about this coastal Eastern Cape city that you won’t love!

And while the tranquility of the suburbs attracts family buyers to this coastal paradise, the buzz of the growing city landscape is beckoning the younger generation to make their marks here.

Port Elizabeth is considered one of the top watersports spots in the world - with its long stretches of golden beaches and perfect wave conditions it is easy to see why so many sportsmen make their way here every year.

If you prefer watching the waters rather than getting into them you will be glad to know that Port Elizabeth’s Algoa Bay is also a great whale watching destination. Spend a day at the Nelson Mandela Museum or shop until you drop at the Baywest Mall!


Families are well-served with high-quality public and private schools such as Alexander Road High School, Collegiate Girls' High School, Grey High School, Pearson High School and Woodridge College; as well as tertiary institutions including the Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University with students spread over eight campuses.


We don’t need another reason to love this city, but if you are still in doubt then the subtropical climate that provides warm but not overly hot summers and mild winters to its residents are surely going add to the charm of this coastal gem.
