Blue Horizon Bay, Port Elizabeth

The peaceful, little village of Blue Horizon Bay lies comfortably between Port Elizabeth and Jeffreys Bay, a seaside hamlet that offers beautiful sandy beaches, and scenery to match. Blue Horizon Bay lies almost precisely equidistant between Port Elizabeth and Jeffreys Bay, and close enough to the Garden Route to surrender to its appeal.

The real attraction of Blue Horizon Bay is the allure of a seaside holiday with waves continuously crashing in the background; days spent idly reading, picking up shells and strolling the effortless stretches of beach - and the idea of merely unwinding and relaxing in an atmosphere where little more is expected of one. Effortless seascapes and stretches of sand are enough to get anyone’s creative juices going, but if you insist on resisting the temptation to wax lyrical, then the friendly city (Port Elizabeth) with its historical attractions, and city-style entertainment in the form of shopping centres, restaurants, excellent beaches, beautiful parks and walking trails; Jeffreys Bay, one of the most renowned surfing spots in the world, and numerous easy to reach attractions, are at hand.

The Addo Elephant National Park is definitely worth a day trip, if not an overnighter, to commune with the over 450 elephants that are the park’s major attraction. Lying in the gorgeous valley of the Sundays River, Addo is not only about elephants. It is also home to the ‘Big 7’, which adds lion, buffalo, leopard, whales and the great white shark to the already appealing menu.

The Baviaanskloof Wilderness area, which lies a short distance from Blue Horizon Bay, in a valley between the Baviaanskloof and the Kouga Mountains, is a wilderness area with an incredible biodiversity that has it short listed for world heritage site status - an amazingly scenic and starkly beautiful excursion.

Beautiful views, great swimming spots and awesome braai spots. We fished from the rocks and the children had a great time playing in the rockpools. Just a relaxing, peaceful place to get away to.
