While we recently brought you the inland pleasures of the Western and Eastern Cape, with these #Karoo Secrets and our completeInsider Guide to Route 62, it’s time to move a bit South in order to see exactly what SA’s Sunshine coast lifestyle living is all about.

If you’ve always just passed through, Port Elizabeth being a prime example, it’s time to make more than a pit stop and get to know these towns a little bit better – See what Friendly City local Anje Rautenbach suggests to see and do here.

Following this more than 500km stretch of coastline from the beautiful forest-clad slopes of the Tsitsikamma with its many eco-trails and hikes, luxury bush destinations and sheltered coves, rock pools towards the lagoons along with seaside holiday towns like Kenton-on-Sea, Port Alfred, Cape St Francis and St Francis Bay.

Not to be missed is the surfing mecca of Jeffrey’s Bay, where you’ll find some of the best surfing spots in the world along with Supertubes, famous for its consistent, right-hand break.

But we’re also talking about the must-visit beach towns of Port Alfred, Alexandria and Cannon Rocks, while further to the route’s northern end is the coastal town of East London, also called Buffalo City.

Here’s your complete guide to SA’s delightful Sunshine Coast…

MUST-VISIT ATTRACTIONS OF THE SUNSHINE COAST:

This unique route’s most striking attraction is the spectacular sandy coastline, consisting of a variety of river channel connections, resorts and great activities for everyone to enjoy along the way.  It is regarded as the ideal route to explore authentic beach and bush experiences, with an array of game reserves in close proximity too.

Then, there are also the thrills of seeing dolphins and whales from the shoreline, hiking, biking and 4×4 trails all adding to this thriving adventure route.

In addition to the beach and adventure experience, there are many monuments and historical elements on the Sunshine Coast and its surrounding areas… key attractions that make complete sense, as well as a few totally random ones that literally make you go, WTF?

From the Keiskamma Art Destination, located in Hamburg, the Big Pineapple en route between Port Alfred and Grahamstown in Bathurst, as well as Kenton-on-Sea’s Sandbar Floating Restaurant – there are just a few of the Sunshine Coast Attractions to check –
