Vaal Marina
vaal marina
Exactly as its name suggests, Vaal Marina is a marina on the Vaal Dam due south of Suikerbosrand Nature Reserve outside of Johannesburg.

The properties here are sought after waterfront homes with views over the dam, one of the largest in the country and the supplier of drinking water to Gauteng and its surrounds.

Whilst Vaal Marina is described as a ‘holiday township’ by some it does not clearly explain that Vaal Marina is actually one of three towns on the flanks of the dam.

The other two are Deneysville on the Vaal dam wall, and Oranjeville on the southern banks of the dam.

The demand for the type of lifestyle that living on the edge of water provides means that much of the area has found itself subdivided into smallholdings, some of which have become game farms.

Not all homes in Vaal Marina necessarily have water frontage, but most will have views, and access to water sports, the marina and boats. This is what is so attractive about staying here. As a contrast to  the waterside you could visit the beautiful nearby Suikerbosrand Nature Reserve.

With fishing, boating, skiing, wind surfing and other water sports all at your disposal, waterside living doesn’t get much better than this.

Interestingly, the Vaal dam has over 800 kilometres of coast line, covering in excess of 300 square kilometres and bordered by three provinces – the Free State, Gauteng and Mpumalanga
