East London, in my opi.jpgnion, is one of those slumbering towns. It has 3 flights in and out daily from Johannesburg. (Be warned, these flights fill up quickly.) It doesn’t have direct flights to many other cities either – so check for flights on Travelstart. The airport is very small and you walk from the plane to the arrivals area. It took 15 minutes from the airport to the guest house right next to a beach.
I only had a chance to visit one restaurant – but it was spectacular. The restaurant is build on pi.jpgllars that carries it over the water. Sundowners with the sun setting in the distance (over the water) – and the spectacular views right beneath you from the window over the ever moving ocean… definitely something to remember.
I’m definitely keen on exploring East London a bit more as I really liked my 30 minutes on the beach – did I mention that tourism isn’t yet developed as in most of the coastal towns.
