Welcome to the Sunshine Coast Info – A Route Site Directory

A fitting name to the coastal belt running from Port Elizabeth (Gqeberha) through to East London in the Eastern Cape.  Filled with excellent activity opportunities and blue-flag beaches as well as great hiking trails and countless towns and villages, the Sunshine Coast is a dream destination.

Having access to some of South Africa’s most beautiful game farms along this route make it yet another reason to visit and why so many head here during the year.  For the most part the Sunshine Coast remains largely unspoiled by commercial industries, retaining its quaint small town and village feel.
