Sardinia Bay offers an exceptional beach experience in Sardinia Bay, which lies between Schoenmakerskop and Seaview, around 10 minutes from Port Elizabeth in the Eastern Cape. Endless kilometres of deserted white sand and unspoiled coastline provides one of the most idyllic settings for beach strolls. The beach is often frequented by sand boarding enthusiasts, surfers, kite surfers, dog walkers, horse riders, and families enjoying a leisurely picnic or brei. Fishing is not permitted as the coast has been declared a Marine Reserve, but snorkelling and scuba diving are very popular. Sardinia Bay offers excellent picnic facilities, seasonal lifeguards, a lifesaving clubhouse, ablutions, and is also the starting point of the popular 8km Sacramento hiking trail.
