The Port of Forth Elisabeth
The Market square and the beaches of Agola Bay are worth visiting.
Very "English" in Character.
The garden route is parallel to Ocean, and features lakes, mountains, beaches and steep cliffs.
Jeffery's Bay is popular surfing beach.
The Tsitsikamma Forest Park contains manyhuge Yellow-Wood trees, the national tree of South Africa.
You can see the Big Tree, more than 800 years.
Then descend by a sharply turning road into the Blue Gorge where the trees are draped in a moss called "Old Man's Beard".
The Boardwalk Casino and Entertainment World
The Boardwalk Casino and Entertainment World is located opposite Hobie Beach, and is – as the name says – a huge entertainment complex. It includes hotels, 24-hour open casino, cinema, restaurants, take-aways, bars, and some shops. The Boardwalk is built up around a man-made lake, and was especially very beautiful in the evenings. 25000 lights lit up the garden and lake, apparently inspired by the Tivoli Gardens in Copenhagen.
I visited the Boardwalk several times during my stay in PE. I did a little shopping, had dinner and lunch a couple of times, and hang out at the SuperSport Arena bar. The sports bar was located inside the casino and showed international football on big screens TV’s. Nice place for a football match on TV and a beer…
Historical Site : Fort Frederick
This old Fort, built from stone, was built by the British.
One have an excellent view from the harbour and Algoa Bay from here. There is not much mor to see, as it is a small, simple, but functional building.
Visiting Port Elizabeth
Dropped by at the Volkswagen manufacturing plant to visit a friend on my way to Krueger Park.
P.E.has to offer beautiful white and large beaches up to 40 km long. There are plenty of nice hotels, shopping centers and restaurants. Fantastic for people looking for vacation. The 4 of the major beaches are: Kings, Humewood, Hobie und Pollok.
Also Ford maintains in P. E. a major manufacturing plant. Next to Durban, P. E. has also a huge harbor.
