Eastern Cape DestinationsBluewater Bay, Port Elizabeth
Considered one of Port Elizabeth’s northern beaches, Bluewater Bay lies midway between the friendly city of Port Elizabeth and the deep water harbour development at Coega, and is renowned for its fantastic views across Algoa Bay, its miles of white sandy beaches, and the lifestyle that goes hand-in-hand with living in this picturesque little enclave.
Bluewater Bay, divided by the N2 into Bluewater beach on the one side and Bluewater Bay on the other, is also one of the fastest growing residential areas in the city of Port Elizabeth - the demand for homes because of its proximity to Coega making it very popular. Bluewater Bay in particular has become increasingly upmarket not least because of its popularity amongst water sports’ enthusiasts who head here to swim, surf, fish and parasail.
There is great benefit and a special quality to living right next to the Swartkops River and salt pans that are home to simply hundreds of water birds. Bluewater Bay also boasts regular dolphin sightings, walking trails that provide immediate relaxation and a way to get away from it all, and frequent whale visits during whale season.
Bluewater Bay has the added benefit of being close to the Sundays River – a favourite for kayaking and canoeing - regarded as the gateway to the Addo Elephant Park, the only reserve that offers big seven (the big 5 plus whales and sharks) viewing.
