Exactly as its name suggests, Vaal Marina is a marina on the Vaal Dam due south of Suikerbosrand Nature Reserve outside of Johannesburg in the Gauteng province. Properties here are well sought after, with 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 may be described as a ‘holiday township’ by some, it does not clearly explain that Vaal Marina is actually one of three towns on the banks of the dam.The other two are Deneysville on the western side near the Vaal dam wall, and Oranjeville towards 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.
