South Africa’s Sunshine Coast, a diverse and relatively undeveloped region, is the coastal route between St Francis Bay and East London in the Eastern Cape. This tourist route is a water sports mecca for all enthusiasts and boasts some of the most unspoiled and immaculate beaches in the country.
We recommend you take a scenic day trip to the coast past pineapple farms and the village of Bathurst to the popular resort town of Port Alfred. Continue to the beautiful beaches at Kenton and Bushman’s River. Return inland past game reserves and the picturesque hamlet of Salem and back to Grahamstown.
For golfers, there are two magnificent 18-hole courses on the coast, Royal Port Alfred and Fish River. Grahamstown’s course is rather more rustic but you would be made an extremely welcome visitor! Also inland and an easy drive away is the Gary Player designed Bushman’s Sands course at Alicedale.
