Jeffreys Bay

J-Bay, as the locals call it, is famous for one thing: surfing. It’s home to the best right-hand surf break in the world, which means the town is filled with travelers looking to catch that perfect wave. If you know your point break from your beach break, grab a board and head out. If you want to learn, there are plenty of surf schools to get you up and running. Accommodation is easy to find and varies from the incredibly cheap to the luxuriously opulent. The town itself has imbibed the inner spirit of the surfer and moves at its own pace, so grab an ice cream and explore the many restaurants and bars. When you are done in the sea, you can try your hand at skydiving or riding a horse among the dunes.
