Beach Road grows
Over the years the Nahoon Beach Road has developed into a major artery in the heart of East London’s business and social scene, similar to Long Street in Cape Town and 7th Street in Johannesburg.
Today, if you take a stroll down the Road just off Old Transkei Road, you will bump into modern and intimate coffee shops, restaurants, wine bars, saloon parlours, a bakery, sports grounds, good schools, a supermarket and plenty of accommodation for holiday makers.
Nicole Jean McComb of skinnygproductions organised a successful multi-cultural Street Festival this year, a first. She agrees that Beach Road is a bustling street. “It has become a great platform to showcase local, creative talent whether it be through food, entertainment, sport or art,” she enthuses.
Nestled at the bottom of the Road is the pristine Nahoon Beach with a Lifesaver Club and the Shack; situated literally at the edge of the sandy beach. The shack recently celebrated a year of night time food and drinks market, sun-downer style.
