Port Alfred lies on the picturesque R72 coastal road, half way between Port Elizabeth and East London. This small place once has been a sleepy fishing village at the mouth of the Kowie river, which is navigable for some 28 kilometers upstream. Today Port Alfred boasts a huge yacht harbour. With man-made islands and canals a paradise especially for boat owners was created, who from here can go either to sea or up the river.
The climate in Port Alfred is, like everywhere else at the Sunshine Coast, subtropical. Wide and long beaches with fine sand are particularly popular with surfers. The water temperatures lie between 18 and 24 C degrees.
Before the coast there are reefs that provide excellent diving grounds. A well-reputed diving school offers its services to beginners. The Kowie river is particularly popular with canoeists (Kowie Canoe Trail, 18 kilometers long). And Port Alfred boasts an excellent golf course too, which belongs to the top ten in the country.
