Jeffreys Bay Backpackers

Found in: Amatola Region, Backpackers, Eastern Cape, Jeffreys Bay, Self Catering

Famous for its perfect surfing waves and home to the Billabong Pro, Jeffreys Bay (known the world over as J-Bay) is truly a paradise for beach and ocean lovers. The Khoisan called it the ‘Place of Dreaming’, and once you have experienced that J-Bay feeling you will know why.The area boasts myriad activities and attractions coupled with a temperate climate, year-round sunshine and low rainfall. The relaxed atmosphere and permanent holiday vibe see visitors returning time and again and it is no wonder that this is South Africa’s favourite beach holiday town.

We are J-Bay’s original and most centrally located backpackers. After 16 years we still pride ourselves on offering clean, comfortable budget accommodation a mere stroll away from stores, restaurants and the beach.
