This place is very consistent - This place is very consistent, uncrowned, warm water and the locals are so nice!
The sandbars on the rock bottom are always changing giving a variety of peaks going right and left at low and mid tide. Mornings are best.
Next to saltrock there’s Tiffany's Reef for big waves and a barreling shore break for boogieboarders.
They say you need a car to surf South Africa. Not in Salt Rock! I stayed 3 weeks at Ian’s flatlet (www.wheretostay.co.za/chartmanor/) just 50 meters form the surf spot. Check the waves at sunrise!
A green tropical region, tide pool, bars, restaurants supermarket at walking distance. It’s a surfers paradise.
