Jeffreys Bay

Jeffreys Bay is a very unique little town, once a small fishing village until a couple of hippy surfers discovered the perfect waves in the early 60’s. Surfers used to travel from far to ride the empty waves and sleep and camp in the sand dunes.

Today Supertubes is known around the world as one of the best waves in the world, where once a year the Billabong Pro Contest is held in July, this is part of the World Surfing Tour (ASP).

Since the hippy days Jeffreys has grown into a bustling tourist destination, filled with surf shops, restaurants and bars, with the beautiful beaches and ocean life it is a great place to visit on your trip along the coast.

Many people come here just to learn to surf and go mad in the many factory shop outlets... shop, shop, shop til you drop! The main beach or dolphin beach is ideal for beginner surfing. There are many board shapers here and it is a great place to have a board made personally for you. Visit these guys and see what they do - it's an interesting way to spend the day when the ocean is flat.

Visit the Surf Museum... wander around at your leisure, to see how the town was in the old days... and check out those old school boards!!
