The Jeffreys Bay Surf Break, located along the west side of the bay, is widely considered one of the best right-hand breaks on the planet, some of them running up to half a mile long! Whether you're an expert surfer or a novice, you'll find plenty of opportunities to hit the water, as well as dozens of local surf shops that offer lessons for families and beginners.
Of course, there's much to enjoy even if you're not a surfer. Explore the area in whatever way you desire: mountain biking, horseback riding, scuba diving - the possibilities are endless! Jeffreys Bay is also home to a gorgeous Blue Flag-designated beach, with the waters offshore offering excellent whale- and dolphin-watching. Be sure to schedule a visit to the Addo Elephant National Park, where you can spot more than 600 elephants, 400 buffaloes, and even roaming prides of lions.
