About Alexander Bay Beach

Your Northern Cape accommodation is likely to be near many of the natural attractions that make this area so special. While this province isnít known for its many beaches, it certainly has some beautiful ones. But, Alexander Bay itself isnít perched on the coastline. Rather, it is on the banks of the Orange River, which opens into the Atlantic Ocean a few kilometres away from the town.

Still, the river has a prettiness of its own. The water is great for a cool dip on a hot day (this part of the Northern Cape can get extremely hot in summer), or paddling and kayaking. Fishermen can while away the hours on the river bank or drive down to the mouth in the hopes of landing an impressive catch. There are walking and hiking trails around Alexander Bay and its sandy river banks.

The Orange River Mouth is an important wetlands area and is home to loads of exciting aquatic species and birds.

The beaches of Port Nolloth (including the Blue Flag Beach of MacDougallís Bay) are only about an hourís drive away, while Springbok is about 2.5 hours away.
