Lovemore Heights, Port Elizabeth

The suburb of Lovemore Heights is virtually synonymous with the secure residential estate that dominates the neighbourhood, called Lovemore Heights Estate. Set on the outskirts of the centre of the friendly city of Port Elizabeth, Lovemore Heights' main allure is the incredible sea views it offers over the Indian Ocean from where it sits, perched on an incline. The other major advantage, of course, is Lovemore Heights access to Port Elizabeth’s airport (it lies but 10 kilometres from Lovemore Heights), and the city centre.

It offers the ideal mix of contact with the city, and certain aloofness, if entering the city’s fray is not on your list of priorities. Lovemore Heights manages to capture the feeling of living in the country. It helps that Sardinia Bay, one of the friendly city’s prettiest beaches, and Schoenmakerskop - the site of a shipwreck and the starting point of the Sacramento Trail - are but a short drive away.

The Sacramento Trail is an 8 kilometre hike that passes through the 320 hectare Sardinia Bay Nature Reserve, starting at the west end of Schoenmakerskop following the coastline to Sardinia Bay. One needs to be relatively fit to tackle the trail, and it is better to do it in a big group.

There is also a circular hiking route that starts at Sappershoek off Marine Drive at the east end of Schoenmakerskop, with an alternative shorter route of 3 kilometres, so not all walking in the area is for hardened hikers. And the city centre offers more than its fair share of attractions - the Donkin Heritage Trail, the beaches of Algoa Bay, St Georges Park, and Bayworld Museum complex to name but a few.

This very quiet area is nice for those wanting to have a relaxing getaway. It's on the outskirts of Port Elizabeth. Lovemore Heights is full of trees and pretty family homes.
