Drive north from Port Nolloth towards Visagiefontein, then head towards the coast. Drive up along the coastal road. Think they mine marble here. There are no signs so just look for it. Tip: Theres a dam close by.

 Additional Information

There are a few small bays in the area with great and consistent surf if youre willing to drive up this way. Crazy shorebreak! The swell comes into the bay and hits the sandbank that drops steeply into the sea. Huge, hollow barrels. Usually closes out but on high tides can get longer rides. Only for bodyboarding. There are a few rocks aswell to watch out for. Heavy beast of a wave.

Atmosphere

The bigger the better it works. Not really a secret spot because its so easily accessible. (Compared to alot of other secret spots in the area.) If your'e comming out this way and have big enough balls, try having a look for Mossel Bay.

Author Saffajono wrote:"If you're comming...have big enough balls*.." Oh REALLY?! (*paraphrased to clarify intent) - You fargin' silly gay bastard! Alright then about your spot description, since you've articulated every detail above it's swell, there's all we need to know for any trips to Marble shorey being scheduled ahead. What I'd to know Saf-no is this, "Have you GOT all of YOU MARBLES?"
THIS IS A CLOSEOUT SHOREBREAK MANY MILES FROM CIVILIZATION & YOU'VE WRITTEN:"...it's so easily accessible.." Thanks so much for the tip Jo-blowjob!!
