There is an endless list of activities to entertain you on a day trip to PE. Port Elizabeth boasts 40 kilometres (25 miles) of magnificent beach, and is renowned for its water sports activities. Deep sea fishing, scuba diving, shopping, golfing and fine dining are some of the activities that can be enjoyed by tourists.
Port Elizabeth is in Algoa Bay and every year whales are a familiar sight along the coastline. Sightings include the Southern Right whale, which mates and calves between July and October each year in the sheltered Algoa Bay.
After sun set the city transforms into a sea of lights and a variety of nightlife. Evening entertainment includes beachfront pubs and cocktail bars.
Port Elizabeth is home to the Seaview Lion Park, where one gets a chance to get up close to the big cats. If they have cubs at the time, they allow the public to play with them, an exciting experience.
