Glendinningvale, Port Elizabeth

Glendinningvale, in the heart of the city of Port Elizabeth - known contradictorily as both the windy and the friendly city (although the former is a little unfair given that Port Elizabeth has the 4th best weather in the world) - is perfectly placed if it’s a beach holiday you’re after as the main beaches - all ten of them - are just a few minutes’ away from this wooded, peaceful suburb.

Glendinningvale is a neighbourhood of shady, flourishing gardens, large homes and waking to the sound of birds that is ideally placed given that a golf course, Greenacres Shopping centre and the airport are all conveniently close by.

Port Elizabethans are generally laid back, or they certainly like to think of themselves as such, hence the ‘friendly city’ label. And it really is a wonderful place to stay - great weather all year round (give or take a windy day or two), beautiful beaches - St Georges Beach and Humewood have Blue Flag status - the Boardwalk Casino, shopping malls, a regeneration project that is set to turn the inner city around, and very little traffic.

We stayed in Glendinningvale for a few nights and really enjoyed the quiet atmosphere. It was pretty and close to the shopping centre. The beaches were only about 15 minutes away. There are no attractions in the suburb itself, but it's central and convenient.
