We Love Summer in Nelson Mandela Bay

  • 02 January 2017 | By Anje Rautenbach

Hello Summer! To say that we've had one of the most perfect summer seasons in Nelson Mandela Bay this holiday is quite an understatement; there was sun, there was more sun and of course, to end things of, there was some more sun.

People from all over flocked to the beach and truly showed just how much they love summer in Nelson Mandela Bay, even the SABC stopped by to capture some of the fun things to do in and around our Bay.
 

 

The #ShareTheBay hashtag filled Instagram feeds with the people, the places and the sights of the Bay; there was food, there were festivals, there was a celebration or two, a beach or three, a braai or nine, some active sports, some water fun, a few breathtaking sunsets and plenty of wildlife moments in nature.

Here are only a few of the things the people of the Bay - visitors and locals - got up to over the holiday season. If you want to see more photos, follow the #ShareTheBay hashtag on Instagram, and if you are snapping a few photos yourself, don't forget to use the hashtag!
