Jeffreys Bay

One of South Africa's favourite family holiday destinations, Jeffreys Bay boasts some of the country's safest beaches including the Blue Flag status Dolphin Beach.

For the more skilled and adventurous, the world renowned Supertubes, where the annual Billabong Surfing competition takes place, regularly presents one of the world's best right breaks for the benefit of the world's best surfers, spectators and the many keen photographers.

The climate is mild and temperate, and residents and visitors enjoy a wonderful, year round pollution free atmosphere.

Live in a virtually crime free part of the world where road rage and trafic jams are a thing of the past.

Adventurous activities for the young at heart

Horse riding and mountain biking. Visit Papiesfontein just outside of Jeffreys Bay and take a horse ride along the beach, which stretches 15km beach from Kabeljous to the Gamtoos river mouth. This unspoilt beach is also ideal for mountain biking at low tide.

Quad biking. If you prefer an iron horse, then quad biking in Tsitsikamma may be what you're after to get your adrenaline going.

Treetop canopy tours. As well as quad biking, Tsitsikamma Falls Adventure Park also offers treetop canopy tours, also known as zip-lining. It's like the good old foofy slide, only better as it takes you through the tree tops in the Tsitsikamma Forest.

Kitesurfing and windsurfing. Fancy the wind in your hair, water spraying over you, and a big sail in front of you? You may want to consider windsurfing in Jeffreys Bay or the nearby Paradise Beach, rated as one of the finest windsurfing spots in the country due, to the constant cross shore winds. As an alternative, and if you're ready for it, take the leap into kitesurfing. Lessons are available from experienced and highly skilled coaches.

Scuba diving. Discover an underwater world teeming with fish, dolphins, sharks and other marine life. Take the plunge and do some scuba diving in Jeffreys Bay or on the beautiful reefs between The Gamtoos and Cape St Francis. Your guide is a qualified professional.

Deep sea fishing. Let Rian Raubenheimer take you out to sea for a day of deep sea fishing from the main beach in Jeffreys Bay, on his boat Bluwater. It is well worth the money. For those who enjoy terra firma, a deep sea rod off the beaches will bring many rewards to the fresh fish loving family.

Kayaking and surf skiing. When we get those beautiful balmy windless days, take advantage to get out and paddle along the beautiful shoreline siteseeing or catching your fresh evening meal.

Game drives. The town is a nature lover's paradise situated at the gateway to the world famous Garden Route and close to the Baviaanskloof nature reserve and the Addo elephant park, to name just two of the many site seeing attractions of the region.

Being Malaria free is a bonus, so when it comes to enjoying nature, and taking game drives in the Eastern Cape to see your favourite wild animals, you should have no health concerns.

Whale spotting. One of the most popular pastimes for South Africans and visitors to our country is whale watching. We are in a blessed position to have the Southern Right Whales come into our beautiful bays to give birth on their way to Hermanus every year. To see these whales is an experience of a lifetime, and at the right time of the year, seeing whales breach is almost a daily event. Later in the year you will also see the beautiful Orca whales leaping into the air on occasions.
