Humewood Beach is South Africa’s oldest Blue Flag beach, located between Kings Beach and Hobie Beach on the outskirts of Port Elizabeth in the Eastern Cape. The immaculate golden beach forms part of the main beach promenade which runs along the coast, with walkways and paths connecting the main beaches, swimming pools, and excellent beachfront facilities.
Humewood Beach offers safe swimming and is great for snorkelling, fishing, sun tanning, exploring rock pools, and other water based activities. Lifeguards are on duty during the Blue Flag season (November to April) and there are superb facilities for the disabled.
There are plenty of shops and restaurants within walking distance of the beach. During the summertime, the adjacent Happy Valley is lit up with colourful lights and offers grassy areas for picnics.
