Port Alfred is small enough that the entire town can easily be covered on foot. It is a pleasant walk from town along the west bank of the Kowie River to the beach (via Causeway and Beach Road). There are beaches on the eastern side of the Kowie River mouth as well but these are quite a bit further as you have to walk around the Royal Alfred Marina.

Fishing - Whether you prefer reef, river, estuary, deep sea or coastal fishing, there are plenty of incredible locations within the Sunshine Coast
to choose from. Port Alfred is famous for having the distinction of
being the third largest “line fishing port” in South Africa.
Diving - The shores of the Sunshine Coast are host to the most unique diving
experience in the Eastern Cape. This part of the coast is famous for
soft coral reefs, numerous wrecks that dot the shores and the incredible
“Lunar landing” where crayfish in the hundreds live and breed.
