Accommodation near Orient Beach

Orient Beach is located in the suburb of Quigney in East London, one of the largest cities in the Eastern Cape province of South Africa. It lies to the east of the Buffalo River on the south end of the Quigney promenade.

Orient beach is one of the safest beaches in South Africa and, not surprisingly, is wildly popular because of this fact. This feature also makes it incredibly popular with families although unlike other East London beaches, it is not great for surfing. The gentle waves which roll in are not powerful enough for surfing, but this makes them perfect for swimmers.

The beach features a super tube that provides extra fun for children and the stretches of grass which line the beach mean space is never an issue. There is also a children's pool and changing facilities as well as refreshment kiosks. The Orient Pier provides a great place for an idyllic stroll, breathing in the fresh ocean air.

The beach is a favourite amongst holiday makers because of its proximity to East London's city centre as well as its proximity to the local hotels and shops.

The ship wreck that the beach was named after in 1907 can still be seen at low tide. Prior to 1907 the beach was called 'Sandy Beach' but that changed when a Russian ship named the SS Orient ran aground at the beach.

Before the construction of the harbour on the one side of the beach, the beach extended all the way to the Buffalo River mouth itself. It was also, interestingly, a recreation area exclusively for men and women were strictly forbidden from going there!

Old area, but no complaints.
- Elsie Kruger

Quigney was a very quiet area, good for when you are with family or when you want to relax. The beach being so close made it even more enjoyable.
