Writing in The National, David Whitley says; “Port Elizabeth, South Africa, is low-key but loveable”:
Having neither the natural beauty of Cape Town nor the big city energy of Johannesburg, Port Elizabeth has a tendency to be overlooked. It’s generally a last stop at the end of the Garden Route, or a base for Big Five game driving in the Addo Elephant National Park.
But the low-key-ness turns out to be its major source of appeal. The centre is equal parts shabby, historic and creative, and it seems to have little in common with the beach suburbs such as Summerstrand. These are full of families on bargain beach breaks and good wholesome fun. Combine the two sides of the coin, however, and it’s a mellow, highly affordable holiday spot with just enough going on to keep things interesting – the lack of expectation works in Port Elizabeth’s favour.
