If you dream of riding the big wave, Jeffreys Bay is your holiday spot. Not only is this where the surf gets real colossal, it’s also a great spot for sand boarding on milk-white dunes and getting high on kite surfing. Stand up paddling is popular too, on the ocean and on the lagoon. Jeffreys Bay is an all-rounder of a seaside holiday town in the Eastern Cape, surrounded by nature reserves and rivers. Conveniently, the town is just off the N2 Highway, approximately 75 km south-west of Port Elizabeth. It’s a holiday playground of beaches and breakers, a place where the weather is mild and the surf terrific. For a casual seaside holiday, it’s just perfect. For your holiday accommodation, we have some wonderful upmarket apartments and guesthouses to recommend.
Jeffreys Bay is in the Top 5 of the world’s best surf spots and boasts the best right hand surf break in all the world. Surfing spots include Kitchen Window, Tubes, Super Tubes, Point and Albatross. At Super Tubes you can expect really large, fast waves, the kind that make it a good place to ride tubes.
The beaches set the lifestyle in Jeffreys Bay. Surf boards, slip slops and ice creams. Burgers and calamari piled high. Late breakfasts, long coffees, and the chance to ride on horseback along the shimmering water’s edge. The beach sands are bestrewn with pretty shells, many of them splendid enough to justify a shell museum in the town. Not surprisingly, the town is also home to a surf museum.
Along with the surfers, dolphins also visit the bay, delighting visitors with their antics in the breakers.
Jeffreys Bay has three nature reserves to explore, and it’s a place that rewards fishermen well for their efforts. The town has all that holiday folk are after: surf shops, coffee stops, places of interest and hand-crafted goods for sale.
On the food scene, Jeffreys Bay is THE place for calamari, being the centre of the Eastern Cape’s calamari industry. Eat your fill of tasty squid and other fresh seafood in Jeffreys Bay’s array of eateries.
