Ngqura, Eastern Cape, South Africa




Ngqura is in Algoa Bay, which was the landing place of the 1820 English settlers. Ngqura, like the rest of Port Elizabeth, has a variety of lovely beaches and great water activities, lovely restaurants and hotels. Some magnificent Whale watching and diving can be done as well.

The actual highlight of Ngqura is a new port being constructed at the mouth of the Coega River 20 kilometres (12 miles) north of Port Elizabeth. It will be South Africa's 8th commercial port. Port Ngqura will be one of the only 3 deep water ports in South Africa.
