PARRA’s main objective is to interact with the Ndlambe LM on behalf of the ratepayers and residents of Port Alfred. Our aim is to engage with the municipality using a non-confrontational approach and to make them accountable for issues that pertain to their services.


PARRA was founded on the basis of improving Port Alfred for all its ratepayers and residents, and to promote the town as a tourist and business destination. To date, PARRA has maintained a good working relationship with all the senior municipal officials, and we strive to continue to do so.

PARRA Chairman, Dawie van Wyk

A gorgeous coastal town in the Eastern Cape of South Africa, known for its beaches, amazing waves, unspoiled natural beauty, iconic bridge and heavenly Marina. Dubbed the “Sunshine Coast” because it boasts the most sunshine all year round in South Africa, just another aspect making Port Alfred the perfect place to settle, retire or as your holiday destination of choice.
