Winterstrand, Sunshine Coast

Winterstrand is a small, quiet village along the coast of the Eastern Cape Province of South Africa, about 25 kilometres from East London. This is one of the ever-growing cities of the province, home to an enormous industrial sector and the only river port in the country. Winterstrand is a secluded area just outside this city that allows locals, as well as visitors from all over the world, to escape the buzz of the city centre and enjoy the bracing breeze of the Indian Ocean, even if only for a weekend getaway.

Winterstrand has many holiday homes as well as beautiful houses that are occupied all year round. They showcase the sea views to perfection as many have glass doors and large windows to allow for the maximum visibility.

Winterstrand is a popular fishing area, and the beach in front of the Igoda River is known for the abundance of pignose, which are found here every year between June and August. There are also bluefish, cod and non-eds.

Being less than 30 kilometres from the hub of East London means that all of the conveniences and amenities of the city are within close proximity to those staying in Winterstrand.
