Jeffreys Bay, known affectionately worldwide as JBay, needs no introduction and is on the bucket list of most surfers.
SuperTubes and so much more!
The fabulous reputation that JBay enjoys means that some of the true delights of this area are often over-shadowed by the fascination with the SuperTubes surf break and consequently, are rarely mentioned. But just a short drive north or south of JBay will deliver you to some of the most spectacular waves and sights you could ever wish to see. There is the little town of Port Alfred to the north (a quaint and attractive small town with a nice sand bottom wave) and then St Francis, home to the fabled Bruce’s Beauties from the movie “Endless Summer” and Seal Point, to the south.
From your accommodation, a short 20-metre walk (yes, that is correct – just 20m) across the grass, will deliver you to the boardwalk over looking SuperTubes. Coffee in hand, you will be able to assess conditions and enjoy the most spectacular sunrise – believe us, they never get boring. Alternatively, you can step out of your room and onto the beach at the less crowded point and beach break of Cape St Francis.
Most mornings, you should be able to enjoy a surf out front, followed by a leisurely breakfast. Your guide will discuss the day’s options from a waves point of view and if you are already surfed out, he will have a bunch of different non-surf activities for you to enjoy.
South African Game Reserve / Sleeping with Elephants
This piece of coast is an absolute gem. With your local guide delivering you to local treasures you might not have found otherwise, you may well fall in love with this part of the world. But for good measure and to really turn up the stoke dial, we recommend a night at one of the most famous South African game parks – Shamwari Game Reserve. And if that is not enough, we also suggest another night, “sleeping with the elephants” in the Kynsna Elephant Park.
The attentive 24/7 care your guide will give you makes this a great option for small groups of friends, families and couples. Local knowledge is key and will ensure you have a safe, enjoyable, stress-free trip to the JBay area.
