From a recreational viewpoint, East London is blessed with the wonderful Gonubie; Bonza Bay and Nahoon Beaches, the Nahoon Reef, a sought after destination for surfers and paddlers and the fourth best member managed Golf Club in South Africa, the East London Golf Club, home to many international tournaments, the SA Open and the Africa Cup, both European Tour events to name but two.
Mpongo Park and Inkenkwezi are two private game reserves which one can reach in under an hours drive from East London. They both offer meals; self-
The Addo Elephant Park is approximately two and a half hours drive, a little far for a day trip but worth a visit if you’re in the Eastern Cape.
The East London Museum offers visitors an opportunity to view the history of the region. Exhibits include that of the Coelacanth, believed to be extinct for millions of years until identified by fishermen along the coast. The Museum and the Nahoon Point Nature Reserve carefully protect the oldest know fossils of modern mans’ existence. Trace footprints, identified as a young child crossing the dunes together with prints of small antelope were discovered in a cave off Nahoon Point.
East London also has a lovely but small aquarium, the features of which are a boardwalk over the sea where one can often see dolphins and whales frolicking in the Indian Ocean and also the seal show which takes place daily just before noon.
Riverbend is situated in the East London suburb of Beacon Bay in the Eastern Cape Province of South Africa. We are located near to some lovely restaurants and also the shopping malls of Spargs; Retail Park and The Hub. A little further afield lie two large malls, Vincent Park and Hemmingways. The latter also has a Casino and Hotel. The exchange rate of the ZAR (South African Rand) makes shopping for international or foreign travellers an absolute bargain. By example, a beer at a restaurant will only cost around 1 US Dollar and a decent hamburger will only set you back two to three dollars. At the time of writing (April 2016) the exchange rates are approximately 1GPP = R22; 1 USD = R15.20 and 1 EURO = R17.16.
