EXPLORE Port Alfred

Situated on the eastern seaboard of South Africa in the Eastern Cape and at the mouth of the Kowie River, is the small coastal town of Port Alfred. The town lies just halfway between Port Elizabeth and East London and is a perfect destination for a weekend getaway if you are looking to escape from the hustle and bustle of the two cities. 

Port Alfred is also widely known as the “Heart of the Sunshine Coast” as it flaunts favourable climate: neither too hot nor too cold.  The Kowie River forms an estuary with the warm Indian Ocean in Port Alfred. This provides an opportunity for various water sports such as bathing, boating, water-skiing, surfing canoeing, windsurfing and bird watching. 

At the Kowie River, rich indigenous vegetation and fauna can be explored as you walk through the hiking trails and navigate the river. Port Alfred has also developed into a relatively modern town, where all discerning shoppers can experience top-class shopping malls. A perfect place to begin this experience is the newly developed Wharf Street which has become an exclusive shopping centre. Wharf Street will keep you entertained as you get to closely experience several fisheries, a brewery, fruit market, and antique stores.   

Upmarket restaurants and bars are also available for those that enjoy experimenting with their palates.  If you are looking planning a holiday in the Eastern Cape, look no further than Port Alfred and take the chance to experience a great city in the making. 

With a variety of self-catering units, game reserves, guest houses and hotels, accommodation in Port Alfred will ensure you have a comfortable yet memorable holiday with your family and loved ones.
