Seeing that the schools are closing today for a six weeks summer holiday break, I am putting up some holiday fun activities to do in and around Port Elizabeth.
RISE AND SHINE!
Get up nice and early. Go for a stroll along Shark Rock Pier to watch sunrise over the Indian Ocean. What a better way to start your day?
BE A VOLUNTEER
Sancobb (but you will probably still remember it as Samrec) is always looking for volunteers of any age to help with daily tasks caring for the penguins at the centre as well as to help protect our precious marine life.
A GIANT FLAG
Did you know that Port Elizabeth is home to the largest flag in South Africa? Take a walk around The Donkin and watch the giant flag of 12 meters by 8 meters, sitting on a 65 metre high pole, fly in the wind. It has become a real landmark on the Port Elizabeth horizon.
TAKE A WALK
Take a walk on the Heritage Trail and visit 51 historic places around the old Hill area. While on the trail you can marvel at 1820 Settler history and historical architecture. Did you know that you can even meet a Queen in front of the public library?
FUN ON THE WILD SIDE
Stay clear of overcrowded beach and head for miles of unspoiled beach at Sardinia Bay. It is perfect for long beach walks, playing on huge sand dunes until you are exhausted and the German Wurst Wagen. You can even take your pet there if it is on a leash.
