A good stop for a couple of days, more if you are a golfer. A very safe area. Easy driving distance from Port Elizabeth and onwards to Plettenburg Bay.

What a lovely stop! Sea, sand and flowers - lovely even in the wind and the cold. Take a drive and say you've been there!

Seal point is well worth a visit and allow a few hours.There is a lighthouse that was closed when we were there but I think it is normally open to the public. The nature reserve is worth the time all by it's self.

Love watching the surfing. Walking and collection shells. Wonderful big beaches. A great place to swim in the sea.

It is a bit of a drive out to Seal Point and we were somewhat disappointed that the lighthouse was swathed in scaffolding for repairs (but happy to see the efforts for preservation). But, we had a great time visiting Cape St Francis Penguin Rescue...More
