It is an important centre for the South African motor industry and used to be one of our major ports. Temperatures are moderate all year round with rain scattered throughout the year. It is a very historic place and one of the oldest cities in SA.
During our summer season, it attracts many people from inland as the calm waters are perfect for all kinds of water sports including scuba diving.
The pier at Hobie Beach (above) attracts many fisherman and on the other side, the harbor (below) can be seen.
There are long stretches of beach to walk along and the road is lined with holiday accommodation.
