    Ideal for a day's trip from P.E.

    by vpas Written Jun 3, 2013

    This town is just about half an hour's drive from P.E. and so you can do it as a day trip. Pack a picnic and sit in one of the beaches and have a fun day. We sat at one of the shores and had our meal after walking around the town and while my boys indulged in some retail therapy

    Walk around this quaint town

    by vpas Written Jun 3, 2013

    There are rows of shops selling this and that!! It is a very cute little town. The shops are so different. Plenty of clothing and smart and natural home decor. Very fascinating to walk around this town.

    Shopping

    Getting some groceries b4 heading to the shops!


    You want anything surfer wise you come to JBay to get it!
    This tiny town has more surfer shops than anything else I think!
    You have the standard shops and you have the factory outlets selling last seasons items at ridiculously low prices - in fact I bought something in the Billabong factory outlet that was still for sale in one of the standard surf shops for double the price.

    So pretty much anything you want and need you can get - Quiksilver, Billabong and Roxy are the main stores here.

    J Bay Aquarium

    Sharks

    As I already said, I don't surf and after a few tedious days of walking the same shopping routes I decided that I needed to do something different.
    I read in my guide book that there was an aquarium here and so Matt and I trot off to the rather unexciting Jeffreys Bay Aquarium.

    It was cheap entrance fee, a short drive out of town, quite busy with other tourists, but quite small and basic - it did however, make for a good afternoon.

    The aquarium as I said is pretty small, and it is all in one room which you see as soon as you go in there.
    You can see the rockhopper penguins, leopards and pjama sharks, a stingray and many other species along with lots of informative notices about each creature you view.

    Surfing is a popular activity here, you can hire or/and buy your board and wetsuit in town.
    Lessons are easily arranged through several outfits in town, including almost every hostel here!
    The surf here is great - it's world famous and so that is why the flocks come here. After a good surf, some great shopping it's time to hit the bars which are as you can imagine always cranky too!

    Jeffreys Bay Beach

    Boardwalk to JBay
    4 more images


    Jeffreys Bay beach is a nice beach, when we were there in December which is the start of the summer, the wind was strong and the seas were cold.
    We were quite happy strolling along the beach and collecting shells.
    The sea here isn't ideal for swimming, being a surfers beach the waves are too high and the current too strong.
    From where we were staying the walk to the beach was an easy one, just down the side of our accommodation on a wooden boardwalk and we were on the sands.

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    At the Kabeljous Area in the northern part of the town, nature lovers can enjoy hikes through the indigenous fynbos, with its evocative scent. The Seekoei River Nature Reserve also offers short hikes and the opportunity to visit the Penguin Rehabilitation Canter. Both reserves as well as the Noorsekloof Nature Reserve offer good bird watching opportunities.

    Jeffrey's Bay is the ideal base from which to explore the wide variety of attractions that this unexplored, fascinating region has to offer. These include the Baviaanskloof Wilderness Area, a variety of game farms, a bird sanctuary and much more

Day trips and half day trips are offered. You can also arraned canoe trips, and other outdoor adventures. The area surrounding Jeffery's Bay is gorgous.
