Port Alfred, as a destination, is a must for all those travelling along the coast. Port Alfred is situated on a scenic coastline and surrounded by spectacular beaches. The Coastline is a series of dune where one can walk for hours on end. The town itself nestles on the bank of the Kowie river and provides tourists with many things to do. The Kowie River dominates the town 29km to the Indian ocean. Most of the river is navigable by boat, making it one of the longest tidal rivers in South Africa. The river offers a great venue for boating, skiing and cruises.
