Marina Martinique is situated on the coastal plain between Jeffreys Bay and Aston Bay in the Eastern Cape, South Africa.
With Jeffreys Bay a surfing mecca and Aston Bay a long-time holiday favourite, Marina Martinique is a truly magical place to live – a constant reminder of just how beautiful life can be.
Whether strolling along the unspoilt white beaches, cruising the blue canals, dining el fresco at the water’s edge, swimming, fishing or kayaking, the Marina offer residents every possible leisure activity. Yet, the marina is only 80 kilometers from the international airport in Port Elizabeth.
The marina, with its 5 kms of meandering waterways, quaint bridges and Cape Caribbean style homes, is both peaceful and safe to live in. It is protected by well-trained security guards, backed up by modern security systems.
With a host of marine life, abundant birdlife, Bushbuck, Blue Duiker and numerous small animals roaming freely, it is a place for children to bloom and grow in a safe and nurturing environment.
The marina covers 85 hectares. Construction started in 1990 and today the estate comprises 384 residential stands and 475 group development units. The area covered by water is 228,500 m² with a volume of 406,100 m³. Boats may be launched at any of the 36 slipways dotted around the estate.
With the marina on average about 3 m above sea level, fresh seawater is pumped in via 11 seawater inlets and eventually overflows back into the sea. The water quality is carefully monitored to endorse Marina Martinique’s reputation as a premier competitive swimming venue. It is in the process of registering for Blue Flag status.
At Marina Martinique we value our fauna and flora as well as our unique marine ecosystem. We promote the protection and conservation of our ecosystem through awareness programs and education activities. Conservation of our plant, marine and wildlife resources are governed by an Environmental Policy.
The challenges of managing and running an estate of this size and complexity are many, but thanks to the commitment and hard work of a Board of Directors, a dedicated Estate Manager, supported by skilled and devoted staff, the marina continues to develop and improve.
