In order to make the province and its attractions more accessible to visitors, the Eastern Cape Tourism Authority has mapped out various tourism routes throughout the province. These routes give prominence to the many and diverse attractions of the province and are clearly indicated on road signs and marketing material. The routes are named after the areas they run through. Each tourist route falls under the jurisdiction of one or more of the newly-formed District Municipalities. Some of the routes are colour-coded or marked with distinctive, individual symbols. Some of the marked routes are smaller and shorter and actually form part of larger routes. These are all indicated by the symbols for the larger routes.
