Cove Rock, Amatola

The exquisite coastal stretch of Cove Rock covers one kilometre of the Eastern Cape shores, just minutes away from the heart of East London. This continues to be one of the most significant industrial cities of the Eastern Cape Province as it evolves and develops. Although Cove Rock is only 15 minutes away from town and 10 minutes’ drive from the nearest mall, it exudes the ambience of the most secluded beaches of the world.

The Indian Ocean waters are warm and the sands white. Cove Rock is not only a perfect swimming beach, but is also great for sunbathing, beach sports, strolls, or simply as a backdrop to a day with family and friends.

There is an undeniable holiday vibe at Cove Rock that continues to make it popular for locals who want to relax in the warm South African sunshine, as well as for visitors from around the world that are visiting the Eastern Cape. The homes here are beautiful, and provide visitors with fabulous options for a stay-over.

Cove Rock is located near to Winterstrand, Sunnyridge, Amalinda, and Fullers Bay.
