ATTRACTIONS & ACTIVITIES
Port Alfred is fast becoming the jewel of the Eastern Cape as more and more people discover the natural beauty of the area - sandy beaches and dunes where one can walk for miles, the Kowie River which flows for 29 kilometres inland from the sea and the indigenous plant life. Kellys Beach, the main swimming beach, has achieved the coveted Blue Flag status.
There is a vast array of beach and water sport activities available including deep-sea and river fishing, beach angling, surfing, diving, sand kiting, duneboarding and canoeing. There are several horse riding trails which include forest, beach and in one case game viewing. Lawn bowls and tennis are also available.
Sheilan House is only 300metres from the Royal Port Alfred Golf Club which is one of the few links course in South Africa and 29 kilometres from Fish River Sun which is a Gary Player designed parkland course. We are happy to book any of these activities in advance of arrival.
The Eastern Cape has an abundance of game reserves which offer game viewing in a malaria free area. Amongst the best known are Addo Elephant Park, Shamwari, Kariega and Pumba. All of these are within 1 to 2.5 hours drive from Port Alfred. Day visits can be arranged to several reserves.
43 Airschool is on the outskirts of town and can offer landing facilities to certain small aircraft. 55 kilometres from Port Alfred is Grahamstown - home to Rhodes University and The National Arts Festival which is held every year at the end of June.
