If you’re looking for a quiet escape from the chaos of bustling cities, it’s time to take advantage of the exquisite property for sale in West Bank, found in the beautiful town of Port Alfred in the Eastern Cape. The settlement was established in the early 1800s by the British and, although now an active commercial and residential town, it has retained most of its English fishing village aesthetic. Properties in Port Alfred are wildly popular due to unrivalled access to a huge yacht harbour and residential marina. This is because life in this part of South Africa is spent languishing on stretches of sandy beach that extend for miles and enjoying the banks of the Kowie River.
Port Alfred is known fondly as the ‘heart of the sunshine coast’ and lies on Route 72 equidistant from Port Elizabeth and East London. Many of the residents in its West Bank suburb have families who have lived in Port Alfred for many generations. This has created a warm, welcoming community that is fiercely proud of the town and its beautiful natural surroundings. Investors looking for the latest real-estate in the Eastern Cape will find apartments, vacant plots, newly developed units and even free-standing homes or smallholdings in this suburb. It is also ideal for growing families, retirees and young professionals alike. Ultimately, this part of the eastern coast is a great spot to consider when looking for property investments in South Africa.
Port Alfred boasts a wonderfully temperate climate - never too hot or cold - with rainfall in the spring and autumn months. This makes it an ideal water sports destination with the warm Indian Ocean nearby and the Kowie river dividing the town in two. You can swim, surf, boat, water-ski and scuba dive when you’re not fishing. Boat cruises and various hiking trails navigate this river region, which is simply bursting with indigenous vegetation, fauna and birdlife. The Gary Player golf course is also within a short drive from West Bank. Port Alfred also boasts a few shopping centres, although not very large, also a cinema and restaurants, as well as a marketplace and several schools.
