World's Coolest Surf Towns: Jeffreys Bay

Buzz Pictures / Alamy

Jeffreys Bay, South Africa

Referred to as J’Bay by locals, this surf destination at the southern tip of the African continent is bucket-list material thanks to long stretches of sandy beach and near-perfect right-handers (waves that break from right to left when viewed from the shore). The city was built around the sport, and denizens and surf pros actively pursue the passion side-by-side. Jump into local life with a lesson from Surf-JBay and oysters at the beachfront Kitchen Windows restaurant, named for the area’s most famous surf break.
