Jeffrey’s Bay is the world famous surf favourite of legends like Kelly Slater and Andy Irons. However, even the most successful surfer needs a break sometimes, and J’Bay is sure to produce some of the most fun, exciting, or relaxing activities in and around the city centre. For the adventurous traveller, Bloukrans Bridge offers the world’s highest bungy jump, boasting a breathtaking height of 216m! Access to the jump point in the centre of the bridge is provided via a specially-engineered walkway underneath the road. Bridge walking tours are also available.

Walking or hiking trails along the beachfront or through the indigenous coastal bush are popular even among the locals. Experience the beautiful Eastern Cape at the very beginning of the Garden Route on foot. Trails range from a comfortable 3km to a more challenging 15km – allowing both the novice and the veteran hiker an enjoyable, relaxing experience. This range in distance also means that this activity is suitable for families with young children. Many of the trails boast picnic spots and specially-appointed outlook points with spectacular views.
Horse trails are also available, which allows you a memorable trip on the back of one of these beautiful, trained creatures; but also allows you to get the maximum enjoyment out of your trail, as you traverse soft white sand dunes while drinking in the spectacular views. It is essential that you contact an experienced guide for these tours. Please contact us for more information at Cell: +27 82 574 9396
4 x 4 trails are another popular activity for the family and individual alike, and travellers are sure to spot some beautiful birdlife and wildlife. Jeffrey’s Bay is surrounded by indigenous vegetation and sand dunes, providing the ideal opportunity to take in genuine South African fauna and flora.
The Shell Museum is an affordable outing, suitable for all age groups. Jeffrey’s Bay is so well-known for the array of shells on our coastline, that we even host the annual Shell Festival. Visit the museum for a truly unique experience. The Shark Aquarium is a fun, educational look into the shark species living off our coast, providing a sometimes-eerie perspective of these beautifully dangerous creatures.
