For moments of sun-drenched, sticky, salty skin, sand between your toes, endless sunsets and glorious sunrises or balmy summer evenings under clear skies, check in at Kowie River Chalets and discover Port Alfred. Also known as the “heart of the sunshine coast”, this small town wonder offers the best of any seaside location found along the picturesque Garden Route. With stretches of golden, sandy beach and one of the most temperate climates in the world, Port Alfred will steal your heart and leave you with an enviable summer glow.
It’s no secret that the Garden Route offers a myriad of treasures, some inconspicuous and off the beaten track, others more popular and even overcrowded at times. Port Alfred offers a perfect balance of both of these characteristics – secluded enough to allow you and the family to enjoy a truly relaxing break, yet dynamic enough to offer a list of outdoor activities and easily accessible sites to keep you tickled throughout your stay.
Location, location, location – that’s what it’s all about when holidaying at Kowie River Chalets. Each charming log cabin overlooks the Indian Ocean, has direct beach access and is within a convenient distance from the centre of Port Alfred and all its amenities. The double-storey chalets at Kowie River offer fully equipped kitchens, a lounge area with satellite TV and secure, covered parking bays.
The impressive yacht harbour and residential marina at the mouth of the Kowie River gives rise to a number of invigorating activities that outdoor lovers will relish, such as the Kowie River Canoe Trail, where you can spot the endangered Barred Owl in the Waters Meeting Nature Reserve.
Add to your seashell collection by scouting the many miles of shoreline or swim, surf, scuba dive and fish, making the most of the warm Indian Ocean right on your doorstep. For a day out of town, venture along the Garden Route and call in at Storm’s River Mouth and the Tsitsikama National Park or visit the Birds of Eden Park at the Crags.
Whether you are in search of a dose of Vitamin D, a warm ocean breeze, some cherished family time or a dreamy escape with a loved one, Port Alfred offers sunshine for the soul and the perfect antidote to cure those inner city blues.
