While Port Elizabeth is known for its beautiful coastline, Beachview offers something completely different from the usual swimming beaches. This entire area is more rugged, inhabited by the scrubby coastal vegetation of the Eastern Cape and lined with beautiful beach homes that the locals occupy.
Beachview offers a great combination of rocks on which to climb, the little rock pools between them, which are great for exploring, and long stretches of sand on which to walk or hike. Children will love climbing over the rocks, searching for shells, examining sea anemones and collecting colourful seaweed. Swimming is not recommended at Beachview due to there being strong rip currents.
There is a hiking route from Beachview to the famous giant dunes of Maitlands.
