This is a very large stretch of a beach, with clean white sand. I should imagine that, even in the middle of the Summer season, one would find a spot to lay one's towels down.

Super blue ocean view! Lovely sandy beach with a large variety of shells to keep you busy all day. Safe swimming area. Fishing from the rocks possible even for beginners. End the day with a glass or 2 at one of the many pubs

Wow what can I say about this beach. The sand is soft the beach is clean. It has blue flag status and the water is beautiful and warm. A must to come to if you are in the Jeffreys bay area.

A great place to be if you are into surfin or fishing, but also if you like to go for a nice walk on the beachside with your bestie , your Dogs and /or your Family. Walk all the way up to the Supertubes , have a coffe or lunch and easily walk back.
