About the Royal Alfred Marina


Our Royal Alfred Marina is indeed a unique and remarkable development, consisting of five islands within a 45-hectare private estate in the Kowie River Estuary. The islands are linked by arched bridges across the canals affording navigational ease for craft moving around the marina. Nowhere else in Africa will you find a similar or more exclusive waterfront complex.

Many beautiful residences grace the marina’s canals, grand testimony to the tremendous vision and courage of the original developers. Each of the 355 plots has the rights to its own private walk-on jetty and mooring, fronting on to wide, deep water by way of natural stone-walled canals. Each plot has at least 15m of its own private water frontage on to the canals that average 50m wide and 3,5m deep giving direct access to the Kowie River or out to sea.

A highly organised professional body known as RAMHOA (Royal Alfred Marina Home Owners Association) looks after the interest of members. A full-time manager and office staff manage every aspect of security, maintenance of facilities, and special requirements of members. Residents enjoy a garden service, recycling facility, recreational facilities – tennis court, squash court, swimming pool and clubhouse where many fun events take place. It has been the scene of many weddings, anniversaries, 21st birthday parties and Ladies Lunches that are generally enormous fun.

The Royal Alfred Marina is an active member of the Association of Residential Communities (ARC) – a body that proactively supports the members of Homeowners Associations (HOAs) and Bodies Corporate, as well as their management teams in the achievement of their vision which classically is to protect, maintain and enhance the value of the property as well as the lives and lifestyles of their residents.

Our marina enjoys Blue Flag Status – an environmental award given to marinas making a special effort to implement sound management with respect to local environment and nature and providing users with information on environmental issues. Our Blue Flag flies proudly at our entrance proclaiming to all that we are a very special corner of paradise.
