With its magnificent beaches, first-rate amenities and generous hospitality, Port Elizabeth has always been popular with tourists. Yet the ‘Friendly City’ also offers much that makes property developers feel at home.
A major seaport and manufacturing centre, especially for the motor industry, the city is South Africa’s second largest in terms of area and the fifth largest in population.
Port Elizabeth Airport is a vital transport hub for tourism and a distribution centre for the city’s industries. Growth in passenger traffic to one million a year has resulted in a major terminal upgrade that will handle future passenger numbers of up to two million a year.
