Jeffrey's Bay Beaches

The Jeffrey’s Bay coast is a haven of unsurpassed beauty and treasures for sea lovers who prefer the less trodden shores. Pristine bays and beaches enchant one at every turn along the 17 km unspoilt shoreline. It is one of those wild, wonderful places where the sea pounds the coast relentlessly and the sun sets the sky ablaze.

Feel the sand beneath your feet while breathing in crisp salt air that carries the unmistakable freshness and magnificence of the ocean while exploring kilometers beaches and see your lone footprints fade into the distance behind you.

It is also a favourite spot for beach and rock angling. The endless sand beach is an Edenic resort for sun-seekers enjoying beach activities such as kite flying, sand boarding and long, invigorating hikes. Beautiful shells and pebbles dot the scenic shoreline and black mussels abound in and around the rock pools, lapped by the warm waves of the Indian Ocean. Its prime location near the very tip of Africa makes Jeffrey's Bay an ideal holiday location for the traveller seeking relaxation and an authentically African visit to the Continent, while never negotiating on convenience, luxury and quality.

Dolphin Beach in Jeffrey’s Bay has recently been awarded Blue Flag statues, a prestigious international award only giving to beaches that meet stringent standards in environment protection, facilities provided and safety equipment and personal on hand.

Jeffrey's Bay Wind Surfing

Jeffrey's Bay Kite Surfing

To many, Jeffreys Bay is all about the surfing. It is common trivia that Jeffreys Bay derived it´s fame from being discovered as a place that has one of the best right hand point breaks in the world. In the early days, hippies from all over the world would settle on the dunes and live off the sea, anticipating the next great swell.

Surf is very consistent most of the time, but the best waves can be ridden from May to August when strong cold fronts from the South West bring good ground swell. The general water temperature is cooler than Durban, but rarely get as cold as Cape Town. There are several different setups where surfers of all levels can slip into perfect waves.

Starting from North to South: Kabeljouws Beach Break, Albatros, Point, Tubes, Coins, Salad Bowls,Supertubes, Boneyards, Beach Break (In front of Checkers), Secrets, Caravans, Main Beach (Dolphin Beach) Kitchen Windows and Phantom Reef. Most breaks in Jeffrey's are reef breaks and booties are advised if you do not know your way around.

Jeffrey's Bay surf operates best with a SSW swell and wind. For proper surfable waves to form, the wave period should be above 10 seconds. Apart from being a renowned world-class surfing destination, Jeffrey's Bay also offers some of the best kitesurfing and windsurfing conditions.
