South Africa has over 1700 miles of Indian and Atlantic Ocean coastline with abundant surf potential all year long. The coast begins at 28° S on the border of Namibia on the west coast, goes down to 34° S at Cape Agulhas and then back up to 26° S at the Mozambique border on the east coast. A surf trip to South Africa offers a greater variety of waves than anywhere on the planet.

While there are many waves and places to stay available for the traveling surfer, WaterWays accommodations are located directly in front of the world-famous walls at Jeffrey’s Bay on the Eastern Cape.

The world’s greatest right point is the featured attraction, but there are a beautiful variety of points, coves, reefs and beach breaks in the region.

The Durban South Coast is the area from Port Edward up to Durban in the KwaZulu/Natal province. A lush and green stretch of coast dotted with very small town that all have their surf scenes and secret spots.

The Durban North Coast is everything from Durban to the border of Mozambique. Some of Africa’s most famous game reserves are inland from the coast and can be visited on guided tours.

Mozambique was a Portuguese colony, so the flavor of life changes the instant you cross the border from the British/Dutch influenced South Africa. The coastline becomes more tropical the farther north one travels.
