Those were the days! Jeffreys Bay: Where holiday dreams (still) come true - since 1894.

People first started visiting Jeffreys Bay back in 1894 when the first trading store opened it’s doors. In 1968 our town was granted municipal status. It has seen massive growth since. Our beautiful beaches, combined with the best right hand surf break in the world, gave us a recipe for success.



Fast forward and we still have the best wave, world class restaurants (many with majestic sea views), accommodation to suit all styles and budgets and many fun new activities including hiking, skydiving, nature trails, water parks, horse riding, water sports, fishing and so much more. There is plenty to do in and around our seaside town.


All of these things make Jeffreys Bay an attractive family destination all year round, even when we find ourselves unable to visit the beach.

We are currently also home to Bruce Gold, surely the oldest surviving surf loving hippy around. True to his nature he is always friendly and glad to have a chat with our visitors.


Our sea and our beach is here waiting for you. Come and Visit Jbay today, we can’t wait to welcome you!
