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.

Was only here for dinner and totally fell in love with the place!

All were outstanding - Oswald the most helpful and versatile, from our tv to the drinks! Jessica was also super. It has been ages since we stayed in Grahamstown but have often driven through - we had forgotten what a beautiful and friendly city it is - thanks to all!

That was exactly the right place to get our batteries reloaded after our trip from Durban. Great food and service!
