  The Coastline of Jeffrey's Bay
by MikeAtSea

Jeffrey’s Bay straddles the western side of St Francis Bay and is world famous in the international surfing fraternity. Jeffrey’s Bay is the largest town in the Kouga municipality and one of the fastest growing towns in the Eastern Cape. This seaside resort was an almost unknown fishing village, with some status in the conchologist community for the number of seashells to be found in the area until the 1960s when the word reached the surfing network that the town had some of the most ideal surfing conditions to be found on earth.

Since then Jeffrey’s Bay has expanded beyond all recognition as it became apparent that the town was not only ideal for surfers but was also an ideal area for family holidays.
