More info about Port Alfred

The English settlers of the 1800s founded and established the elegant seaside resort town known as Port Alfred. Located along the banks of the Kowie River and in the heart of the popular tourist haunt the Sunshine Coast, there is much to fall in love with when it comes to Port Alfred. Despite it developing into a fully-fledged holiday locale, Port Alfred has retained its English fishing village aura and is magnificently beautiful and equally lovely. With its superb climate – never too hot or too cold – Port Alfred is the ideal destination to enjoy a myriad of fun-filled water sports. In fact, the annual Kowie River Canoe Trail, which features a 40km-long return paddle race and a 12km hike, is hosted here attracting a fine field of competitors from all over South Africa. Other water sports to enjoy include boating, scuba diving, water skiing, surfing, swimming, and fishing of course.

Port Alfred is furthermore rich in indigenous vegetation, birds, and plants making it a scintillating natural paradise where long languid walks can be enjoyed as well as bike rides and hiking – all terrific ways to explore this outstanding terrain. Of course what would a holiday resort be without the beach? Port Alfred is blessed with one of the best swimming beaches along the Sunshine Coast where visitors spend hours just enjoying the warm waters or tanning under the generous amounts of sunlight received in this part of the world. Like Jeffery’s Bay, beach-goers have the wonderful opportunity of collecting sea shells with an impressive 1800 shell variations spotted here. Finally, if you’re holidaying in Port Alfred and love the game of golf there is a pristine course waiting for you; the Gary Player golf course at the Fish River Sun is just a 20 minute drive from the town.
