With a colourful sea-faring history dating back to the 15th century, the Friendly City retains its air of Victorian elegance, softly tempered by the casual coastal atmosphere. This unique combination of grace and charm is perfectly mirrored in the classic Victorian white-and-red façades, Tivoli-styled gardens and debonair 5-star interior of The Boardwalk hotel on the Port Elizabeth beachfront.

An ideal location from which to explore Port Elizabeth experiences and attractions.
