Sunshine Coast

6th wonder of our world - the Sunshine Coast - is a beautiful coastline in a part of the Eastern Cape Province. It starts just south of Alexandria, ascending to Salem and Grahamstown, an area with numerous private game farms and along the coast and the Indian Ocean up to the Great Fish River. Bathurst with its old English style look and Port Alfred is the heart of the beautiful countryside of the Sunshine Coast. The area is malaria free and has a wonderful climate with temperatures between 8 and 27 degrees and more hours of sunshine than anywhere else in the country. The Indian Ocean has year-round swimming temperature since dolphins can stay here throughout the year...

Two rivers, beautiful beaches, especially beautiful scenery and lots of fun things to do, making the villages wonderful vacation destinations. A better beach than in Kenton-on-Sea is hard to match. Something that also makes Kenton popular is the fact that it is located between the Kariega- and the Bushmans River, where the ocean meets a stunning nature reserve; Joan Muirhead Nature Reserve.
On the Sunshine Coast you will find endless beaches with meters high dunes, reminiscent of the desert dunes of Namibia, where you can hike, go horseback riding but also Sand-boarding.

Water bodies in the rocks and protected beaches are beautiful places that can be reached by canoe or boat and the fisherman then of course takes a fishing pole and a drink and snack for when the sun goes down to enjoy this very beautiful place. Besides it being very popular with families, Kenton-on-Sea Cannon Rock is much quieter and the best place in the world for the adventurous kite surfer and kite boarder. This water sport is the no. 1 sport here. Each year in January, visitors come from around the world for the Kiteboarding competition which is a huge spectacle for spectators.

Cannon Rock and Boknes fishing is popular, but also the walk to Kwaaihoek and the Dias Cross which says in memory of Bartolomeo Dias here and is more than worth it. Inland are many Big Five Game Reserves and Addo National Park which even has the Big 7, whales and the great white shark will then form part of this in Algoa Bay. In the valleys and Bushveld around the rivers you can see 200 birds on your list... and of course also various natural areas. In Kowie River you find the Waters Meeting 1 and 2 nature reserve and this will also help to visit the Moya Park and Woody Cape with many different bird pictures.

The Sunshine Coast and its hinterland offer plenty of 4x4, walking, biking and hiking trails. There are nice restaurants and lots of galleries and studios. Here you'll find Xhosa culture and remnants of the wars between the English and Xhosa and in Grahamstown beautiful architecture. So besides the beautiful weather and life on the coast, there is much more to experience in a not so well-known area!
