Paradise Beach is a nature conservation-conscious community just outside Jeffreys Bay in the Eastern Cape, South Africa. Paradise Beach offers miles of unspoilt beaches. You will see tortoises, buck and an impressive variety of birdlife in the gardens and walkways.
Jeffreys Bay is named after the senior partner in the firm Jeffrey & Glendinnings that opened a store in 1849 on the location where the town is today. Jeffrey is believed to be the first person to have settled there.
In the late 1960s and early 1970s, Jeffreys Bay was known as a hippie hangout, where the now-burgeoning surf community originated. Jeffreys Bay has grown fro a sleepy little fishing town over the past few years and is one of the fastest expanding urban areas in the country.
Xhosa, Afrikaans and English are the three most spoken languages in the area.
Jeffreys Bay is one of the five most famous surfing destinations (No. 2 on one of the best in the world surfing lists) in the world and hosts the annual World Surf League surfing event at Super Tubes during July. Spectators and professional surfers from all over the world flock to this event.
Jeffreys Bay is a popular tourist destination because of its surfing opportunities and the Blue Flag beach.
The area is famous for the abundant seashells, great seafood and calamari. The nearby Kabeljous, Seekoei and Krom River lagoons host numerous water birds and are also ideal for watersports like canoeing, boardsailing and fishing. Every year, migrating whales make their way to Hermanus and Witsand to give birth and whales can be seen breaching almost every day during the season. Dolphin beach is the ideal spot to see a pod of dolphins surfing the waves and frolicking in the water.
The ocean temperature is ideal for a swim in the many rock pools which can be accessed during low tide along Paradise Beach.
Just northeast of the town, on the Kabeljous River, lies the Kabeljous Nature Reserve. It is a walk-about reserve, well known to anglers for the diverse number of fish. The Kabeljous estuary is one of the best-preserved estuaries in the Eastern Cape. The lagoon is home to waterfowl, herons, and a variety of waders. Nearby, the Seekoei River Nature Reserve lies between Aston Bay and Paradise Beach. The reserve lies on the estuary formed by the Seekoei and Swart rivers. The reserve is rich in birdlife with over 120 species of birds. The lagoon is also home to numerous Red-knobbed coots and small antelope. There is a circular hiking trail that takes about three hours to complete. The trail starts with a trip on a raft across the lagoon and runs through fynbos and subtropical vegetation.
