Vaal Marina is considered the prettiest of the three Vaal Dam villages that flank the shoreline; the other two being Deneysville and Oranjeville.

As you come over the rise into Vaal Marina the holiday atmosphere and beautiful tranquil scene of water and multi-coloured houses that greets you is one that is not easily forgotten.

One of the most popular and enjoyable attractions is the Vaal Dam itself which has a large variety of watersports available, including jet skiing, canoeing, rafting, sailing, water skiing and fishing.

Beautiful homes with panoramic views sprawl over the hilly terrain giving the town a permanent almost coastal holiday atmosphere which the non-permanent residents and visitors alike find very difficult to leave and it is this that keeps bringing them back.
