Kellys Blue Flag Beach, Port AlfredBack

The warm, gentle waters of the Indian Ocean provide a great opportunity for youngsters to experience swimming in the sea with their parents.    Kelly’s Beach has won various awards over the years and is recognised by international standards as a beach that offers excellent value to visitors, as well as the surrounding environment.  Factors such as safety, cleanliness, ablution facilities and lifeguard services are some of the factors considered when awarding Blue Flag status. The 400m-long beach offers ample space for various beach activities. Sun-seekers can gaze out into the horizon and maybe even spot whales and dolphins frolicking in the ocean.  Surfing is a popular activity at Kelly’s Beach, with beach breaks that offer both right- and left-hand waves. The wind comes mainly from the north-west, and swells in excess of 3m are fairly common. The soft brown sands of Kelly’s Beach are ideal for building large sandcastles and keeping children amused for hours. The south-east coastline of South Africa is characterised by its largely unspoilt sand dunes and sections of vegetation, with Kelly’s Beach fitting the mould splendidly.
