A little on Port Alfred
Port Alfred is known for the wonderful temperate climate, pristine endless beaches, friendly 'village' atmosphere and magnificent Kowie River, which flows out to the warm Indian Ocean.
Escape from the hustle and bustle and suspend time. Experience the serenity, tranquility and absolute beauty this little town has to offer. With breath taking views and inescapable beauty, Port Alfred is one of the few places that offer a remarkable range of activities from fishing, sand boarding, surfing, canoeing, horse riding across the beaches, hiking and two well known golf courses. Port Alfred has many beaches; one in particular - Kelly's beach - has recently been awarded the Blue Flag status. There are endless opportunities for you to enjoy the outdoors, wildlife and magic of this area.
Port Alfred is also only 15 minutes from the historical settler's town of Bathurst and within an hour's drive to Grahamstown and numerous private game reserves dotted around the area - all which are malaria-free.
