Jeffreys Bayjbaygif

On the south coast of the African continent and on the same latitude as Cape Town, Jeffreys Bay has the advantage over the mother city by being on the leeward side of the landmass and protected from the infamous Sou'westers.
Famous since the 1960s for its perfect waves, together with Bondi in Australia and Waikiki in Hawaii it is a major location on the international surfing circuit and facing out onto the morning sunrise and the Indian Ocean, Jeffreys Bay is favoured by the warm waters of the Mozambique current making it also an ideal location for its active scuba diving community.

Boasting a large, modern shopping mall on a par with any big city Jeffreys Bay has a broad supply of supermarkets, fashion outlets and appliance stores but still has plenty of small specialist shops, tea rooms and cozy restaurants to allow it to supply all modern conveniences and yet maintain its 'old world' charm

At the eastern end of the famous Garden Route, Jeffreys Bay is just off the N2 motorway which is the major artery connecting Cape Town (via the Garden Route) with the cities of South Africa's east coast, as well as providing access to the Drakensberg, the heartland of the country, the Witwatersrand and eventually to the Kruger Park and the north. Therefore, Jeffreys Bay is the ideal spot to use as a base for exploring the rest of the country while being able to look forward to returning to the comfort of a well appointed apartment by the sea.

So whether its sipping an iced Daiquiri on the sea front watching the dolphins play in the surf or strolling along the kilometres of perfect white beaches spotting the occasional Southern Right or Humpback Whale, Jeffreys Bay has everything to offer for a relaxed and comfortable holiday.
