Eastern Cape DestinationsSundays River, Greater Addo
Along the banks of the idyllic Sundays River, outside Port Elizabeth in the Eastern Cape, is the residential area of the same name. Many of the homes here are holiday homes, and it is no wonder, as they perch on the banks and boast breath-taking views of the river and the sand dunes that whisk visitors away from the real world.
This is a quiet area, and those that have chosen it as a permanent residential address are usually retired, opting for the tranquil way of life over the buzz of the city.
Sundays River is about 30 minutes from the heart of Port Elizabeth, and is nestled amongst the rolling hills and the sand dunes of the Eastern Cape. About 10 minutes further towards Grahamstown is the ever-popular Nanaga Farm Stall, famous for its freshly baked pies and gourmet deli items.
There are river tours conducted on a regular basis, which introduce visitors to the flora and fauna of the area, particularly the birds. Sandboarding is also a very popular sport here, taking advantage of the gorgeous dunes across the river.
The stunning scenery makes for the perfect backdrop for a restful getaway, or for holiday photographs to last a lifetime.
