The Royal Alfred Marina

The Royal Alfred Marina is a private secure gated estate completed in 1989. The Royal Alfred Marina is indeed a unique and remarkable development, consisting of five islands within a 45-hectare private estate in the Kowie River Estuary. The islands are linked by arched bridges across the canals affording navigational ease for craft moving around the marina. Nowhere else in Africa will you find a similar or more exclusive waterfront complex. Every home owner enjoys private water frontage and a personal jetty. Visitors can enjoy boat cruises through the Marina canals and if you feel energetic you can hire a water pedalo or canoe to make the trip.

Port Alfred’s glorious East Beach is on the seaward side of the Marina and stretches for many kilometres along the edge of the warm Indian Ocean. Home owners have their own access gateway to this pristine stretch of golden sands. Here you can walk for what seems like ever breathing in the freshest sea air and enjoying the changing scenery as the seasons merge one into the other and the sands shift. This beach is a favourite haunt of fishermen, joggers, sun worshippers, dog walkers, swimmers and surfers.

Port Alfred

Port Alfred is a small town with a population of just under 26,000 in the Eastern Cape province of South Africa. It is situated on the eastern seaboard of the country at the mouth of the Kowie River, almost exactly halfway between the larger cities of Port Elizabeth and East London.

Port Alfred was established in the early 1820s by British settlers who were moved into the area by Lord Charles Somerset as a buffer between the Colony and the Xhosa people.

Port Alfred boasts not only the climate, the water, the beaches and the historical connections, but has stepped into the modern world with top-class shopping malls, sophisticated healthcare, a Royal golf course, intimate small-boat harbour, light industry, international hospitality university and 43 Air School, a world-class training facility for pilots and air traffic controllers. Visit Port Alfred, chances are you’ll meet some fascinating locals with plenty of yarns to tell. Folks are friendly around here.
