East London overview

East London, with its nostalgic charm and laidback ambience, is a beautiful coastal city. Its broad expanses of white sandy beach are legendary, attracting sun-seekers, swimmers, surfers and other water sports enthusiasts. Away from the beach, East London has a wealth of attractions, from its impressive colonial architecture to the superb Queen’s Park Botanical Gardens and Zoo. East London Museum has some fascinating natural history exhibits, including the coelacanth type specimen and a real dodo egg. It’s possible to take tours from the city to visit the amaXhosa, where visitors can try out local food and watch traditional dance.

When to fly to East London

East London is a great place to visit at any time of year although the very humid climate means it is never completely dry. Humidity levels reach over 80% between November and March. The least humid time to visit when the rainfalls are at their lower levels is in June and July which are also the coolest months.

Getting around East London

There is no organised public transport system in East London, so car hire is the most practical and convenient choice for visitors wanting to explore. Car hire firms have offices at the airport and in town. Otherwise, taxis are not too expensive and can be pre-booked.

Visitors should take the usual safety precautions when out and about, especially at night, and seek local advice where necessary. Always follow local guidance concerning currents and tides when it comes to beach safety.
