Clean and not over crowded. This is probably one of the best beaches to play in the sand and swim with the kids. We will be back for sure.

Beautiful clean secluded beech. Very calm water but very rocky. Suggest wearing water boots. Lots of shells to be collected. Only thing missing was a shower to clean off after being in the sea otherwise would have been perfect.

We visited the Paradise Beach in Jeffrey's Bay a few days ago. It was an awesome experience and I would say a definite place to visit when in Jeffrey's Bay (we are definitely going back there soon for sure). The beach is very clean and not too full, like some of the very popular beaches in the country, which makes... More

Great quiet beach, a refreshing experience from the crowded beaches that are typical at this time of the year. Facilities could do with some work- the bathrooms are not well looked after. But the beach is perfect for couples who are looking for some quiet romantic time by the beach or small families who don't want to worry about losing... More

Paradise Beach is a very long elongated beach nestled between Jeffrey's Bay & St Francis Bay. Coming from Australia where we have gorgeous beaches too we were actually disappointed with this whole area. The whole region has enormous potential & is in need of a huge reno to bring up to a world standard beach location.

there is nothing better than walking on this beautiful beach, miles and miles of clean sand and blue water. I just love walking and picking up shells or just sitting on the sand and watching my kids play in the waves

It has a great potential, but the whole area is neclected and un invited. the main roads are full of holes and in teribble condition. the seround seems that no one try to paint and clean it. no an invinting place al all. better to go to other beaches that are much much nicer

Really a lovely area with more secluded beaches compared to J-Bay beaches. However, the bridge has frequently been flooded preventing cars from crossing. There is an alternative route. For incredible accommodation see Surf Lodge South Africa (SA). A beautiful house with spectacular views. Be sure to visit Tapas Beach Restaurant for delicious seafood and De Viswijf for brilliant food, especially... More

Unfortunately the day of my visit was littered with plastic bags, polystyrene take-away containers and anything that can float along the water's edge. What sacrilege... what an absolute disappointment for such a true piece of nature in such a beautiful town - needless to say we were immediately looking for the public amenities manager to lodge our disgust. Maybe if... More

the sun can be hot and you’ll definitely need a strong sunscreen and a hat unless you take some shade with you. You’ll find great views and tranquil waters here without many visitors. On the endless sandy beach you can collect shells and curious shaped stones and from time to time a couple of jellyfish washes out. I have been... More
