Spring has sprung and it's time to chase the sun in South Africa, and where better than to chase it all the way to its homeland on the Eastern Cape shores of the Sunshine Coast.
From Tsitsikamma up to East London where the Wild Coast starts, you can surf, sunbathe, swim, canoe, hike and explore the little nooks and crannies of a quiet coast where the crowds are less dense, with Port Alfred at its heart.

Besides small coastal hamlets divided by rivers and estuaries, it also boasts two big cities on the route - the Friendly City of Port Elizabeth and the city-that-feels-like-a-town East London with its history and architecture.
Whatever your perfect holiday experience is, the Sunshine Coast is bound to leave you sunny and relaxed.
