The country has been known as a perfect place for surfers. It is blessed by some of the most consistent and exciting surfs the world has to offer. The weather can be mild or warm, depending on the time of the year. The cold front flows constantly from southern Atlantic, producing endless flows of wind. There are numerous premier surf spots in the country, including Bruce’s Beauties, Victory Bay, Seal Point and Jeffrey’s Bay. When we go to South Africa, we should make sure that we are accompanied by locals who have proper knowledge about great surfs in the area.

The tour in the area can remain personal and in some cases, it is possible for surfers to find that they are nearly all alone on the beach.

Nearby, there’s the Cape Point Nature reserve, with boulder beach and wild penguins. For added adrenaline jolt, there are also some bungee jumping venues in the country.

For dinner, we could dive for some tasty crayfish and we can grill these big prawns using local ingredients and condiments. The Buffalo Bay Point is another spot where we can find the best swell in the country. In the right conditions, we can many superlative elements of the area. We should be able to find a gentle, long surf, which provides steady flow for surfers with different skill levels.
