Click here for Nahoon Accommodation
Nahoon, East London, has been developed around the picturesque Eastern Cape Nahoon Beach, East London's most popular beach named after a local Xhosa chief. Famous throughout the South African surfing community for producing some very impressive waves, and host to many national surfing competitions, East London Nahoon Beach's magnificent golden sand runs kilometres to the north, and to a rocky point to the south, which has a constructed boardwalk reaching all the way round to Nahoon Corner, giving one a bird's eye view of the famous East London Nahoon Reef dive spot. With lots of crevices and swim-throughs, Nahoon Reef is an exceptionally beautiful area with lots of reef and sand areas, and the best time to dive this well known Eastern Cape dive site, is when the sea is flat and calm after low tide.
For safe bathing for those who don't want to brave the East london Nahoon Beach surf, the shallow, clear estaury created where the Nahoon River ("Nxaruni" in Xhosa), flows into the sea is an ideal swimming area, or just for relaxing or taking a leisurely walk along the waters edge. The Nahoon River is also popular for paddling, water skiing, and is also a favourite Eastern Cape fishing spot.
Lying on the banks of the Nahoon River, the beautiful upmarket East London Nahoon suburb offers outstanding Nahoon self catering accommodation at 3 Star Kennington Palms. This Nahoon accommodation establishment is centrally situated, close to all amenities, and just down the road from Nahoon Beach.
