Port Alfred is a vibrant coastal town on the Sunshine Coast between Port Elizabeth and East London. The cheerful climate, endless golden sandy beaches, quaint old harbour and upmarket residential Royal Alfred Marina draw holidaymakers from all over the country.
The Kowie River runs through the town, providing a playground for watersport junkies with great waterskiing, angling and canoeing. Try the two-day Kowie Canoe Trail for a real wilderness adventure.
At the river mouth are some great surf spots. Hard-core surfers head for the barrels rolling off the East Pier. From here the scuba diving charters, deep-sea fishing boats and yachts head out to the distant reefs and deep sea. Experience the unique soft corals and sponges on the reefs or dive 18th Century shipwrecks.
Venture out of town to see the Great Fish Point Lighthouse or go hiking in pristine Eastern Cape Valley Bushveld. There are excellent hiking trails and horse riding along the beach and inland at Three Sisters Horse Trails, Horse Shoe Bend Reserve and the Kap River Nature Reserve.
