Port Alfred

A picture is worth a thousand words and nowhere is this more true than when looking at photographs of Port Alfred. This lovely late-afternoon shot over the Royal Alfred Marina and town is an invitation to Paradise.

We have here in our tiny paradise more than the average attractions to offer even the most discerning visitor - amazing beaches, indigenous valley bushveld, semi-mountainous contrasts, and glorious valleys. And to top it all a blissful temperate climate, with the longest sunshine hours in the Cape.

This 1820 historical settler town straddles the banks of the glorious KOWIE RIVER, which is navigable for 29 kilometres. The variety and diversity of the numerous hotels and bedding establishments are geared to suit all. From family accommodation to glorious guest houses there is a ‘bed’ for any pocket. We have pristine white beaches that stretch for ever, diving sites to astonish the eye and surfing spots that are lauded far and wide. The fishing industry, that encompasses the commercial fishing sector, is considered the 3rd largest ‘hand line fishing’ industry in Southern Africa. Our Whale and Dolphin sightings are magical and our bird life in and around the area so exquisite. Port Alfred boasts not only of the climate, the water, and the historical connections, but we have stepped into the modern world with top-class shopping malls, sophisticated healthcare, a Royal golf course, intimate small-boat harbour, light industry, hospitality university and an air school, considered world class. Unique in geographical situation, we are surrounded by the most exciting array of game reserves and parks, yet to be equated in Southern Africa.  In a totally Malaria-free area, not only do we boast of conservation and animals for display and enjoyment but a proactive, world-class hunting industry. There are international artists who live and work here. 

There is so much to do in the region, so many interesting places to go to and so much to do while visiting us here. The warm Indian Ocean and many inland water surfaces offer endless opportunities for bathing, boating, water-skiing, surfing, windsurfing, angling, diving, and bird watching. This is the world of eco-tourism where you can hike and holiday to your heart’s content at a wide variety of venues.   

Whether you come to rest, or are looking for new experiences, you will find what you want here. From the roar of the lions in the distance, to the lullaby of the sea on our shores, we are no longer the secret destination in the Heart of the Sunshine Coast, we are the most exciting, pulsating, desirable and affordable holiday venue for any age.
