Dolphin Beach, Jeffreys Bay

Located at South Africa's surf capital, Dolphin Beach attracts mostly windsurfers, body boarders, and less-experienced surfers with its gentle constant waves. This Blue Flag beach features a wide stretch of soft white sand lined with hotels, restaurants, shops, and surf schools. The presence of well-trained lifeguards and plentiful entertainment opportunities--waterslides, quad bikes, horseback riding, and mini golf--makes the beach well-suited for families with children. When you've had enough action, stroll down the beach looking for shells and watching for dolphins. Nearby attractions include a surf museum, a shell museum, a penguin center, and a shark aquarium.
