The Nelson Mandela Bay Website offers detailed information on accommodation, including hotels and bed-and-breakfasts. Because the Conference Centre is on the Summerstrand North Campus it is best to find accommodation in Summertrand or near the Nelson Mandela University. For our guests from up north: Summerstrand is close to the sea!

The Boardwalk Casino and Entertainment World Complex also hosts a number of hotels in the City Lodge Group (Road Lodge, Town Lodge, City Lodge and Garden Court) as well as a brand new five star, the Boardwalk Hotel and Spa. All of these hotels are near the beachfront. The Beach Hotel, which is near the Boardwalk entrance, has a lovely verandah which is very popular.


The Nelson Mandela Bay website provides a detailed list of restaurants in the Port Elizabeth Area. There are also a number of restaurants at the Boardwalk Casino and Entertainment World Complex including Chinese, Italian and Greek restaurants. Further afield in Stanley Street, Central, there are a number of unique eateries with al fresco eating possibilities if the weather is good. Several of the restaurants have received good ratings in Tripadvisor, for example Fushin Sushi Bar.



The Nelson Mandela Bay website provides numerous possiblities.  The favourite destination of tourists currently is Route 67. Also recommended, but requiring a vehicle, are several game parks in the Area, the most well-known being the Addo Elephant National Park.
