Welcome to Port Alfred
Known as ‘the Kowie’ for the picturesque canal-like river that flows through its centre, Port Alfred is blessed with stunningly beautiful beaches, with some to the north backed by massive sand dunes. Upscale, contemporary holiday homes line the marina and the hills surrounding town. It's generally a quiet place, except for visiting Grahamstown students. Things get busier during the rowing regatta in late September, and from mid-December to January, when the town bustles with South African holidaymakers.
