Jeffreys Bay is best known for surfing (and lately the very dramatic shark thing with that Australian surfer guy) but it's also a great place to just hang out and chill. Of course there is the beach to go to for the beach lovers (although seriously: those waves are not a joke so be careful) but there is also a pretty ok mall, a lot of cool places to eat, and a lot of South African holiday spirit, no matter what time of year it is!
J-Bay is surfers territory and home to some of the biggest surfing events on the calendar. As with most surfing towns, it has developed a renowned party vibe, attracting the young and beautiful from all over South Africa. So if surfing and partying are right up your street, then a few days at Jeffrey's Bay is an absolute must! The crowd here know how to have a good time and will leave you craving the more relaxed coastal retreats, after a few days of intense clubbing.
Referred to as J’Bay by locals, this surf destination at the southern tip of the African continent is bucket-list material thanks to long stretches of sandy beach and near-perfect right-handers (waves that break from right to left when viewed from the shore). The city was built around the sport, and denizens and surf pros actively pursue the passion side-by-side. Jump into local life with a lesson from Surf-JBay and oysters at the beachfront Kitchen Windows restaurant, named for the area’s most famous surf break.
I went to surf the ways I saw in the movie The Endless Summer. I surfed supertubes and st. francis. The locals said it wasnt the best days to surf but I still thought the waves were top notch. I cant imagine surfing there on a good day...
