Geography and History

Jeffrey's Bay is situated right near the tip of Southern-most Africa in the Eastern Cape province.   It sits at the gateway of the beautiful Garden Route – the famous route between Port Elizabeth (Nelson Mandela Bay) and Cape Town.   From Jeffreys Bay, this scenic road winds through the beautiful Tsitsikamma forest, Nature’s Valley, and the seaside towns of Plettenberg Bay and Knysna.   Due to this prime situation, Jeffrey's Bay provides travellers with an ideal base from which to explore the enchanting east coast of South Africa.

 

Activities

Fondly referred to as J’Bay by locals and loyal visitors, Jeffreys Bay boasts long stretches of golden sand, and warm waves of the Indian Ocean. Jeffrey's Bay is an ideal holiday location for the traveller seeking an authentically African holiday destination with every convenience, luxury and quality accommodation. Dolphin Beach in J'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 is best known for its spectacular surfing spots, including Kitchen Windows, Surfers Point and Super tubes, which is internationally acclaimed as being one of the world’s top ten surf spots and is host to the International Billabong Pro surfing competition. Straight, long, hollow cylinders and sizeable swells guarantee that even the most expert of surfers enjoys a challenging and beautiful ride on some of the world’s most remarkable waves. Despite this acclaim, J’Bay is also the ideal location to tutor potential Billabong champs.

The Shell Festival is another highlight enjoyed by tourists and locals alike. This part of the coast is famous for its exquisite array of shells, and the festival acts as an opportunity to showcase this variety in a responsible way. Apart from a display of these shells, you are guaranteed to see them put to an innovative use; from ornaments to ashtrays, shoes to cutlery. If you are not in Jeffrey's Bay for the festival, be sure to visit the Shell Museum to experience some of the magnificent diversity gleaned from the South African coastline.

 

Accommodation

Jeffrey's Bay offers visitors a variety of accommodation options.  Backpackers and Bed & Breakfasts are plentiful in response to the popularity of the town as a holiday destination. For this reason, J’Bay demonstrates a welcoming ambience, and ensures that visitors are completely catered for in terms of comfortable accommodation, safe transport, and top class facilities!
