How do you #sharethebay with your guests?

So I’m a huge fan of the #sharethebay initiative that Nelson Mandela Bay Tourism has been running in our bay for the last couple of years and of course you know that I’m a huge fan of travel (this is a travel blog, after all, even if it didn’t start out that way!) but I have to admit a dirty little secret:

I don’t know what to do with guests when they visit…

My cousin and her husband and brand new bouncy boy are arriving a little later today and once again (actually for the third time in the last month) I find myself wondering what to do with guests when they visit. These particular cousins are from the UK so honestly all I really need to do is show them what colour the sky is when there are no clouds, but I’d like to do more.

I feel like I should have like a go-to #sharethebay routine that I use for first-time visitors to the city. Is that dumb? I mean… I know there are plenty of lovely places and I’ll show them a few of those places in the short time that they will be here, but a big part of me kind of wants to sit down sometime and do a kind of set itinerary. Like have a list of things to do if you have half a day, or a day, or three days. That sort of thing.

So what I want to know is what do you do when out-of-towners visit you? How do you go about your #sharethebay when your time is limited? What are your must-sees and can’t-misses? And don’t tell me there’s so much to do – because of course there is! (actually that might be part of the problem)

Tell me. Specifically.

What do you do?

  1. Good question Nadine. There is just so much to do that it’s hard to decide. I reckon Sardinia Bay beach is one of the most beautiful unspoilt beaches in the world, so if the weather is good that is first on the list. Then of course our wonderful beachfront promenade (just this morning we stood and watched a swimmer at Hobie beach surrounded by hundreds of dolphins – how wow is that!), Donkin reserve and the magnificent Addo Elephant Park. We did a post on a 1,2 or 3 day itinerary for visitors to PE which is great for first timers and packs in most of the top attractions. It really depends on whether visitors want to chill or fit loads in and also on budget. Either which way you look at it there will be so many opportunities to #sharethebay as it’s just far too good to keep to ourselves! (
