Ride the rolling waves featured in the classic surf movie The Endless Summer, watch international surf competitions and spot migrating whales at this stunning beach.

Jeffrey’s Bay Beach is a stretch of gold-colored sand met by warm Indian Ocean waves. Take a dip in the lifeguard-patrolled swimming area, spot playful dolphins and learn to surf on the world-famous waves. The beach rose to international fame after it was used as a filming location for the 1966 surf movie, The Endless Summer. Enjoy an exciting day out at Jeffrey’s Bay Beach and join the pursuit for the perfect wave.

Jeffrey’s Bay Beach is split into several sections, all of which are accessible on foot. A short walk from downtown Jeffrey’s Bay is Dolphin Beach (or Main Beach). Explore the waterfront to find shops, hotels, cafés and restaurants. The calm shores and changing facilities at this beach make it a popular area with families. Ride the waterslides or play a round of miniature golf at Dolphin Beach Entertainment. Learn to surf in the gentle waves at nearby Kitchen Windows.

Walk north along the soft sand to discover popular surfing spots such as Magna Tubes and Boneyards. Watch talented surfers and kitesurfers riding the big-barreled waves. Continue to Supertubes, where the consistent waves are considered to be some of the best in the world. Visit Supertubes in July when the beach hosts an international surf competition, featuring professional surfers from around the world.

Lifeguards patrol the beach year-round. Swim and surf between the flags to avoid the current. Find numerous surf schools located on the beach, which offer equipment rental and lessons with experienced surfers.

Don’t miss the chance to enjoy spectacular wildlife sightings in the Indian Ocean, such as pos of dolphins playing in the waves. Majestic humpback and southern right whales swim offshore during the migration period between June and December.

Jeffrey’s Bay Beach runs along the waterfront of Jeffrey’s Bay. Dolphin Beach fronts downtown Jeffrey’s Bay and Supertubes is about a 30-minute walk from here. If arriving by car, use the free parking areas situated at the back of the beach.

Fine, but...
"The hotel room was clean and the bed comfortable (we like very firm mattresses). The bathroom is small, with a very narrow shower door (since there is plenty of wall next to it unsure why). The bath towels were clean but showed signs of age (some holes in one). The little porch was overfull. A room ..."
