South Africa

J-bay is probably Africas most famous surf spot. The J-Bay area has a stunning amout of surf, good swell and an active surfing population. Fame brings crowds - but don't let that put you off - this is the real-thing

Be sure to visit the Shell Museum to experience some of the magnificent diversity gleaned from the South African coastline. Jeffrey's Bay provides travellers with an ideal based from which to explore the enchanting east coast of South Africa.
