I was privileged to spent two nights at the Empekweni Beach Resort, 30 km away from Port Alfred in the Eastern Cape, and about an hours drive on the R72 from East Londen. What a sophisticated location so close to nature. Your heart will bleed to spend more time on the unspoiled tranquility of the Empekweni beach.
Conference facilities are superb for a rural based location. Quality meals are served with wide variety, and I am told the African cuisine and seafood buffet on a Saturday is legendary.
This former caravan resorted has been transformed to a fully fledged holiday destination.
I stayed in a comfortable and pristine cottage next to the sea side. Cell phone reception is poor within the ambits of then cottage but hell, there was 4G reception on the beach.
Since it was winter, the club house was closed, however, its roof deck with loungers offer unspoilt views for the soul.
