Bathurst, Sunshine Coast

Bathurst is situated on the fringes of both the Sunshine Coast and Frontier Country, a half hour drive from Grahamstown or 10 minutes from Port Alfred.

Halfway between Port Elizabeth and East London, Bathurst is a short 10 minutes from Port Alfred, with it's fabulous beaches, restaurants, shops and the popular Royal Port Alfred Golf Course.

Seeped in the history of the Eastern Cape's tumultuous past and personifying the essence of the brave and hardy English Settlers which while giving it a distinctly English rural feeling, it's beautiful indigenous trees such as the giant wild fig trees and the brilliantly coloured Coral trees which predominate remind one that this is still Africa. Today Bathurst brings together the past and the present, being the hub of one of the largest pineapple growing areas in South Africa.

Bathhurst is such a cute little village and we just loved seeing the big pineapple! The pineapple farms all around made some stunning photos and the people were very welcoming. The pub is so old and quaint. There are quite a few little shops along the main road, but not much more to do, which suited us as we just wanted a quiet day of exploring the EC.
