Great stroll down the trail to the beacon - not too strenuous but not for the faint hearted on a hot day. Perfect for families and history/ shipwreck fanatics.

It was a rare windless day in PE, so went down to Schoenmakerskop. It was very tranquil down there and we walked around the cannon and reading it's history.

A friend arrived in the country after being away for 10 years plus. We had to just pop in here and admire the beauty. We have done sundowners here with friends and alone and had to toast to this. You can relax, walk or just soak in the view.

When I lived in Port Elizabeth this restuarant was certainly one of the best places to go for a Sunday lunch or breakfast. The ambience and locality make it an experience as well as enjoyable meal.

My Wife and i recently made a trip to Port Elizabeth and took a drive along Marine drive to check out the views.

At the very end you will find the Sacremento Cannon at Shoenmakerskop also known as Shoenies.

Awesome views, good hiking trail and also a wooden stairway leading down to the beach which provided amazing photos.

A must see if you are in Port Elizabeth.

Beautiful area to explore about 25 kms from Summerstrand - take the coastal road. Excellent setting and views. Food and service excellent - we mainly had the breakfasts - traditional English and I asked for poached eggs which were superb and they shared their method of preparing them with me. There are multiple artifacts and paintings depicting the maritime theme relating to the Sacremento ship that went down in 1647. There is one of the huge cannons attached to the wall. The dining room is a large open plan and can be a bit noisy and echoey !. If its not to windy sitting outside is an option. Easy access for frail folks. Great choice on the menu and a must do if in P.E. Suggest you check the their facebook page for times or phone and book ahead.

I know the story of the Sacramento and has got both Gerry Allen's books about it and the Doddington. The drive up to the cannon is along a street with a row of houses on one side and the sea on the other, and when we saw the house on the end opposite the cannon was for sale we wished it was ours. The cannon is in remarkably good condition and it is still possible to read the inscription, which is the same as for the Miracle Cannon in the Bayworld Museum.

Fantastic weather and beautiful hikes in the reserve and in the marine reserve area as well. Very rich in the history of the sinking of the Sacramento.
