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.
