More info about Port Alfred

Port Alfred is a quaint and tiny town in the Eastern Cape, the Jewel of the Sunshine Coast, situated in beautiful scenery where the Kowie River meets the blue Indian Ocean. The Kowie River runs through the picturesque little town, under a huge bridge. The town is built around a gorgeous estuary, and is surrounded by miles of exquisite beaches.

Midway between East London and Port Elizabeth,  Port Alfred was started by settlers coming to Africa to farm the area in the 1820s.  A main crop appears to be pineapples.

The climate is mild and temperate all year, with rain in spring and autumn.

The little village remained remote with a single hotel and few houses, in a farming area, until development of holiday homes began in the 1970's.Port Alfred is now a lovely seaside resort built around a heavenly estuary, in natural surroundings with ocean and river frontages.

A Paradise for Nature lovers , there are magnificent beaches, sand dunes, rock pools, lagoons and seaside forests.
