For peace and tranquillity in the heart of nature

The perfect family getaway situated 29 km south west of Port Elizabeth in the Seaview area


Oceanview Forest Resort is a fun, nature, family breakaway in a tranquil park-like setting, well protected against the notorious PE wind, situated 29 km south west of Port Elizabeth in the Seaview area, and only 15km from the new Bay West Mall.

Breath-taking 180 degree ocean views. 2km to the very popular Seaview Lion/Game Park, 1.5km to the sea for rock-fishing and swimming and +-10km to the beautiful Maitlands’ dunes and beach where you can enjoy paragliding, swimming and long beach walks.

The park borders on the Island State Forest Reserve.


When we originally decided to open our Seaview property to the public, we landed on the name “Oceanview Holiday Resort” as our recreation hall offers a magnificent 180 degree view of the warm Indian Ocean.

Now that the forest side of the property has become our main focus, we have elected to change the name to “Oceanview Forest Resort”.

Over the years many people have come to our resort for a well-earned holiday, to watch the large variety of wild birds and still to be seen,
a variety of wild animals or just wanted to breakaway for some peace and quiet.
