24 Hours in East London

East London in the Eastern Cape is also known as the Buffalo City by the locals.  The town lies between the Nahoon River and the Buffalo River, making it the only river port in South Africa.

East London is a popular tourist and holiday destination with its sub-tropical climate and the warm waters of the Indian Ocean.  The town lies at the northern end of the Sunshine Coast, a 300 kilometer stretch of coastline.  The Sunshine Coast is known for its unpolluted and un-crowded beaches, making it even more appealing for surfers, swimmers and sun worshippers.

East London is a holiday destination for the whole family, whether you are stopping here for your entire holiday or just stopping over en route to your holiday destination. East London is one of the most appealing cities on the coast, and with all the activities it has in store, you will most probably stop over on your way back home again, as 24 hours in East London is way too little time!
