Port Elizabeth is a city quite misunderstood by those who don’t live here. From the outside, Port Elizabeth may look like a slow and sleepy backwater town lacking in a unique allure. This couldn’t be more wrong. The truth is, Port Elizabeth is a place best understood by exploring it thoroughly and without preconceptions, allowing the city’s true charm to show its face. Stroll along the beachfront at sunset and watch pods of dolphins swim by; sip on a pint of locally-brewed craft beer and enjoy the sights and sounds of Baakens Valley; walk along the bustling Stanley Street as you restaurant-hop from one joint to the next; surround yourself in our history as you discover the classical architecture of Central; or take in the beautiful scenes of nature and the smell of wild ocean as you hike along the famed Sacramento Trail.
To show you that our city is so much more than it’s made out to be, we’ve brought Port Elizabeth to you in an original video showcasing some of the city’s best attractions. Discover it for ‘yourselfie’ and see that there’s a lot more to Port Elizabeth than meets the eye.
