Port Elizabeth is located on the shores of Algoa Bay in the Eastern Cape and is the 5th largest city in South Africa (after Johannesburg, Cape Town, Durban and Pretoria) with a population of around 1.2 million. Here are some photos of "The Friendly City"
^^ It's more frustration with it being run into the ground by a crappy local government than poo-pooing the city itself or it's residents. It really needs some tender loving care and comprehensive local economic development framework to get it going. It has potential! Juxtaposed with other coastal cities in South Africa, as a tourist destination, it has so much lofty competition. If you're not at the top of your game as a coastal destination in SA, you get left by the wayside.
Because it is small, economically in decline not growth and has massive mismanagement for years. It is undoubtably a city with potential, but not one that has come close to being realised. Its a pity, because it does have a great beach environment and yes should get more attention than it does.
