In the 'hood, Gonubie as a destination

The little beachside village of Gonubie, considered fondly by East Londoners as theirs, lies on the beautiful estuary of the Gonubie River just eight kilometres outside of East London, perfectly placed to act as a stopover en route to Cape Town or as a base to explore neighbouring towns of Cathcart, Stutterheim and King Williams Town. Things are relaxed here and letting go of tension is easy ... cont.
