Royal Alfred Marina

The Royal Alfred Marina is a private, secure gated estate completed in 1989. The Royal Alfred Marina is a unique and remarkable development, consisting of five islands within a 45-hectare private estate in the Kowie River Estuary.

The islands are linked by arched bridges across the canals affording navigational ease for craft moving around the marina. Nowhere else in Africa will you find a similar or more exclusive waterfront complex.

Every homeowner enjoys a private water frontage and a personal jetty. Visitors can enjoy boat cruises through the Marina canals, and if you feel energetic, you can hire a water pedalo or canoe to make the trip.

Port Alfred’s glorious East Beach is on Marina’s seaward side and stretches for many kilometers along the warm Indian Ocean’s edge.

Homeowners have access gateway to this pristine stretch of golden sands.

Here you can walk for what seems like ever, breathing in the freshest sea air and enjoying the changing scenery as the seasons merge one into the other and the sands shift.

This beach is a favorite haunt of fishermen, joggers, sun worshippers, dog walkers, swimmers, and surfers.

Port Alfred

Port Alfred is a small town with a population of just under 26,000 in the Eastern Cape province of South Africa. It is situated on the eastern seaboard of the country at the mouth of the Kowie River. The town is almost exactly halfway between the cities of Port Elizabeth and East London.

Port Alfred was established in the early 1820s by British settlers who were moved into the area by Lord Charles Somerset as a buffer between the Colony and the Xhosa people.

Port Alfred boasts not only the climate, the water, the beaches, and the historical connections, but has stepped into the modern world with top-class shopping malls, sophisticated healthcare, a Royal golf course, intimate small-boat harbor, light industry, international hospitality university, and 43 Air School, a world-class training facility for pilots and air traffic controllers.
