Port Elizabeth is the third largest port in South Africa and there are some of the most beautiful and clean beaches of the city where water sports are famous for windsurfing, swimming, sailing, fishing, diving, etc., as well as wonderful whale exploration trips.
Port Elizabeth is located in Eastern Cape, 770 km east of Cape Town, South Africa.
Port Elizabeth was founded as a city in 1820 to house British settlers as a means of strengthening the border area between Ras and Khuzha, the area now forming the Nelson Mandela Bay.
Before that, they were settled by a people called Algua at least 100,000 years ago, but they abandoned it 2000 years ago to work in agriculture in the Khosha region and migrated north to remain a semi-deserted area until the British came to set up one of the largest ports in South Africa.
The Portuguese were the first to visit the Europeans in 1488, where Vasco de Gama referred to the nearby bird island as a fresh water landing.
The region became part of the Cape colony to intervene in the conflict between the Union of South Africa and the East Indian Indo-India until 1910 when Britain won the Boer War.
