Accommodation in East London is easy to find. Lying between the Buffalo River in the South and the Nahoon River to the North, East London is a vacation hub with a wonderful sub-tropical climate and scenic views. The coastal town receives most of its tourists in the summer months, when the warm waters of the Indian Ocean lap the shores, but also makes for an excellent winter getaway. Due to it being a popular holiday destination, selecting East London accommodation is a decision worth making.

A mixture of modern and quaint make up the accommodation East London has on offer. Like the accommodation, the town is a mixture of both worlds making it perfect for all types of vacationers. With its 19th century architecture the town of East London is a splendor to look upon.

The Natural History Museum must be on the to-do list, as this museum contains the last remaining Dodo egg in existence- the Dodo was a flightless bird that lived on the island of Mauritius and has been extinct since the mid to late 17th century. The museum also contains an exhibit of a Coelacanth that was found in 1938 previously assumed to be extinct.

If you love the ocean and sun-bathing then East London is the place for you, with long stretches of pristine white sandy beaches to walk upon and the warm Indian Ocean to bathe in this town has it all. Go to Bonza Bay to do some sand -boarding down the massive sand dunes or go to Gonubie Beach on the Gonubie River- a main attraction for visitors.

Once you have your accommodation in East London, Eastern Cape then you can explore the other wonders that this town has to offer. Like the Lion Park, The East London Zoo- with 50 mammal species and a large playground for the kids, and the Aquarium with seals, penguins, pelicans, a shark pool and an elevated whale-watching boardwalk to keep your family entertained.

If you like to go fishing then the gullies, river mouths and lagoons will be paradise to you. And once the sun goes down there are plenty theatres, cinemas and restaurants to keep you entertained.

This town has everything a vacationer could hope for, so stay in East London and experience it for yourself.
