J-Bay has endless beaches which call out for long walks or whole days of beach bumming. From the lodge it’s a pleasant walk down the main beach, Dolphin Beach into Jeffreys Bay town where you are spoiled for choice in big brand surf wear as well as surf equipment like custom made surfboards by local shapers . Dolphin Beach in J-Bay has Blue Flag status that means it’s both clean and safe to swim. In peak season life guards are ever present and a bird’s eye view would be one of a melange of different colour umbrellas, bikinis and people having fun.  When not chilling, look out for the thousands of shells on the beach that beg to be collected for special memories.
