Greenacres, Port Elizabeth

The leafy suburb of Greenacres, perfectly situated - if you consider its proximity to beaches, the main freeway system, the Kempston Road area and the airport - for those on business or holiday, is virtually synonymous with Greenacres shopping centre - described by some as the place to ‘shop ‘till you drop’ in Port Elizabeth.

Greenacres forms part of a kilometre-long complex with a plethora of shops, particularly on the Greenacres side (when combined with the adjacent Bridge Shopping Centre it is said to be the second longest under one roof in the country) where there are a score of smaller novelty and speciality shops, clothing boutiques, coffee shops, restaurants and jewellery shops. Add to this the Greenacres Entertainment Centre in Ring Road, which includes tenpin bowling and a ‘kids galore’ section, and you’ve got fun for the whole family - provided you can ignore the call of the beaches.

The beaches of Port Elizabeth, just minutes from Greenacres, are renowned as all-year round beaches that offer safe swimming and surfing in the gentle curve that makes up Algoa Bay. With two winner blue-flag beaches - King’s and Humewood beach - you’re not short of beautiful places to laze in the sun, although you’re likely to have to brave crowds if here on weekends or over summer holidays. Cape St Francis and Seaview Game Park, admittedly a little further afield, haven’t yet been claimed by the hordes and are worth seeking out for that reason.

Verified reviewvery good

Greenacres is very convenient because it's on Cape Road, which goes through the main part of PE. The homes are huge, and so old-fashioned, we loved the charm. It's also got the Greenacres Mall within walking distance of the neighbourhood, which was just right for me, being a shopaholic!! We found quite a few restaurants in the area, as well as KFCs, McDonalds, etc.
