Port Alfred is at the centre of the Sunshine Coast in South Africa. It is one of the most popular destinations in the country because of its long sandy coastline. The atmosphere is laid-back, in part because this is the kind of place visitors are likely to put down roots.
With the beach as the main attraction, Port Alfred has fostered a thriving surf culture. Outfitters and instructors operate across the resort and village area. With cheap car hire in Port Alfred, surfers can connect to little-known beaches on the outskirts of town where crowds are non-existent.
Golfing is another popular sport in Port Alfred. The Fish River Sun Golf Course is planted along the coast to the east of the river, while Royal Port Alfred Golf Course is west of the river and attracts more tourists. Both are open to non-members on a regular basis.
Port Alfred is about halfway between Port Elizabeth and New London along R72. It perches at the mouth of the Kowie River, a popular venue for picnics and outdoor activities. It is possible to take daytrips into the countryside with car rental in Port Alfred, visiting areas such as Water's Meeting Nature Reserve.
The Port Alfred railway station is along Main Street on the eastern bank of the Kowie River. Trains head east to East London and West to Port Elizabeth and eventually Cape Town. Route 72 also heads in both of these directions, and the distances are short enough to cross with car hire in Port Alfred.

What do I need to do when picking up a car?
To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient.
