It may be out of the way, and it's definitely not an easy beach to gain access to, but it's worth all the effort to reach it. Locals consider it their secret place, so visit it if you can. You won't be disappointed.

A wild big beach with big heavy surf that rolls in from the Indian ocean onto South Africa's uncluttered, straight coastline. Big dunes, big sky,big waves and well worth going to.

No visit to Port Elizabeth is complete without spending some time at Sardinia Bay. The sand dunes are amazing and one the top is reached, the view in both directions is just wonderful.
