Eastern Cape DestinationsHumerail, Port Elizabeth
Close to the beaches of Port Elizabeth, and touted as the latest ‘designer suburb’, Humerail - with homes that are worth well into the double digit millions because of the incredible views they offer over Algoa Bay - lies just off the beachfront, close to golf courses and downtown.
Add to this already attractive part of town the development of a 1000-seater international conference centre that is set to change the face of Port Elizabeth, and particularly areas such as Humerail, and you can understand why staying in this highly desirable part of town becomes more than an option. The city centre, undergoing a complete revitalisation, is moments away and your access to the wonderfully relaxing beaches of Port Elizabeth is excellent.
The Humerail Waterfront Shopping Centre, with some incredible restaurant options, a conveniently placed internet café and a gym for the diehards, is at hand and a new shopping centre and boutique hotel, due to open soon, have been approved for the beachfront.
The Spoornet Great Train Race, postponed after a rather sticky situation that led to the race being declared illegal but hopefully to be reinstated, is an exciting race that sees over 600 teams of 10 runners each compete against the famous narrow-gauge Apple Express Steam train to see who can reach Loerie, over 72 kilometres away, first.
