Quigney is the oldest section of the city of East London, South Africa. This suburban area was formed in 1873 and land sales only took off after a tramline was built to reach the beach and easier access established into the suburb. Today, Quigney is the heart of East London where top hotels, edgy restaurants and the aquarium line the beachfront.
Sometimes known as Settler Country for the influx of German and British immigrants to the area in the mid-1800s, East London is South Africa’s only commercial river port harbour, overlooked by Quigney suburb. The city is nestled between the warm Indian Ocean, the Amatola Mountains and the East London Coast Nature Reserve that incorporates several marine and land reserves.
The suburb has a charm to it that long-time residents strive to maintain and is considered a trendy locale for students attending the East London campus of Fort Hare University. With a beautiful stretch of beach on its doorstep and within easy reach of the CBD, Quigney is the favoured destination for visitors to East London.
