Eastern Cape DestinationsFramesby, Port Elizabeth
Framesby is one of Port Elizabeth’s well-known residential suburbs. It is flanked by Cape Road (which is part of the N2 motorway, extending from Durban in KwaZulu-Natal, through Port Elizabeth in the Eastern Cape, and all the way to Cape Town in the Western Cape) and Kragga Kamma Road. It is situated next to the suburb of Sunridge.
Framesby is not home to many well-known tourist attractions, but it is close to various shopping centres, including Makro and a number of other national franchises, supermarkets, fast-food outlets and restaurants. In addition, schools and hospitals are nearby, and the heart of Port Elizabeth’s city is a mere 15 to 20 minutes’ drive away. The trendy malls of Greenacres and Walmer Park are also both within 15 minutes’ drive away (out of peak hour).
The tourist hotspots of King’s Beach, Hobie Beach and the stretch of waterfront (complete with stalls and plenty of kids’ activities) in-between are about 20 minutes away, and invite thousands of visitors from all over South Africa every summer.
