Port Alfred

About Boogy Boarding at Kidds Beach

So much of the accommodation in Port Alfred is either on or overlooking the gorgeous beaches. And, when you see the consistent swell and feel the warm summer sunshine of the Eastern Cape, that’s exactly where you will want to be too.

Amongst the many other water sports that can be enjoyed on Kidds Beach and Kelly’s Beach, boogie boarding is probably the easiest to learn and master. Also known as body boarding, you simply lie on the board, wait for a wave, kick hard and catch it (hopefully, all the way to the shore). You can also enjoy a peaceful drift on your board, carried along by the gentle currents of the river and the undulations of the sea.

Because it is relatively easy and safe, boogie boarding is popular for the young and the young-at-heart alike. The ocean waters of the Eastern Cape tend to be warmer, as they are from the Indian Ocean. So, even on cooler days, they are quite inviting.

Body boards are available for rental in various sizes and the local boarding shops can provide valuable advice on water safety and the best spots for some serious boogie boarding fun.

Port Alfred is also very popular for surfing, thanks to the consistently good waves. Stand-up paddling, kite-surfing, windsurfing and kayaking are prime pastimes for locals and visitors too. Kelly’s Beach is a stunning Blue Flag beach that is gorgeous for swimming or strolling along. Kidd’s Beach is also beautiful, and a popular spot for families.

The town of Port Alfred is small. It is almost two hours from Port Elizabeth and 90 minutes from East London, situated between these two main cities.
