kwela-town-of-the-year

Relaxed coastal town, Jeffrey's Bay or "J-Bay", first came to international recognition in the 1966 Bruce Brown surf film, Endless Summer, and has become a mecca for surfers from around the globe in the decades in-between. Marketed as the "best right-hand break in the world", this Eastern Cape town offers the same thing to surfers and non-surfers alike: warm waters, endless beaches, marine life and an unparalleled Eastern Cape vibe! The bustling town is bordered on both sides by nature reserves and rivers – the Kabeljous and Seekoei estuaries and within Jeffreys Bay –the Noorsekloof nature reserve.

Kyknet's Kwela Dorp van die Jaar/Town of the Year is a prestigious tourism award given to one small South African town each year. Finalists are selected from each province in South Africa, followed by a nationwide vote that saw Jeffrey's Bay come out on top for 2018! 

This accolade brings essential tourism awareness to small-town South Africa and comes in the final days before the annual Jeffrey's Bay Winterfest: 

“J-Bay” offers everything from whale watching, nearby nature reserves and calamari that takes your tastebuds on the ride of their lives. If you’re at a loose end next month, here’s what’s happening in the newly-crowned Town of the Year:

• Corona Open Jbay (surfing) @ The famous Supertubes from 2 to 17 July.

• Cold Water Classic (swimming) @ The Marina Martinique on 8 July.

• JBAY Wind Farm MTB Classic on 14 July.

• Endurance 2018 JBAYX Trail Run on 14 and 15 July.
