Walmer Downs is a quiet residential suburb that is tucked away between the William Moffett Expressway and the Baakens Valley in Port Elizabeth, Eastern Cape. It has wide roads, flanked by large sidewalks and tall trees that were planted generations ago. These lend the entire suburb a leafy, peaceful look and feel.

There are many homes, both old and new, as well as some fantastic townhouse complexes, a retirement home, and Aurora, a renowned medical and care facility.

Walmer Downs is situated very close to the beautiful Baakens Valley, which is an awesome spot for picnics, hiking, cycling and exploring for young and old alike. Here is a variety of birdlife in the Baakens, including the gorgeous Peacocks, whose characteristic calls echo throughout the valley.

The airport is only 15 minutes away, while the stunning beaches that attract throngs of tourists to Nelson Mandela Bay every year are about 20 minutesí drive away.
