Understand[edit]

Admiralty bay is geared towards the sailing boats that frequent its harbour.

Get in[edit]

Get around[edit]

You can easily walk to most places -- for example, from Admiralty Bay to Friendship Bay should take less than an hour. If you're in Port Elizabeth, taxis are easy to locate and inexpensive -- drivers congregate "Under the Almond Tree" near the ferry dock on Belmont Road. Rates between destinations are fixed, and the same for every taxi company: If you'd like to know what the rates are, inquire at the Tourism Association kiosk, also near the dock. Outside of Port Elizabeth, businesses are happy to call a cab company ahead of time to arrange a pick-up. Dollar vans are another popular option, and at between EC$1 and EC$5 per fare, they're less expensive than taxis. Routes and schedules might be a bit confusing to the uninitiated, but the Tourism Association can provide information about them, as well.

See[edit][add listing]

There is a beautiful but expensive vegetable market on the main street near the dingy dock. Cheaper vegetables and fruit can be bought on back street stalls.
