East London

Crossing the great Kei River from the Wild Coast will bring you into the Eastern Cape of South Africa. These lazy, quaint little towns of Morgan’s Bay and Kei Mouth are better known for fishing as opposed to surfing. The waves in this area are raw, powerful and completely uncrowded. Less than an hour drive away you’ll come across the East Coast Resorts area. This part of the coast is littered with reeling right hand point breaks and beach breaks for all levels.

East London is 20 minutes away and has some of the most consistent waves in the entire country. Nahoon beach is great for beginners and Nahoon Reef is a bowly right hand point break that has been compared to Sunset in Hawaii. Eastern Beach is another one of those East London surfing spots that can get really good on it’s day. This area is teeming with quality waves all within a 20 min drive.

Further up the coast is the quaint little fishing, holiday town called Port Alfred. East Beach is the most popular surf spot, a reeling right sand bottom break, which runs along the east pier. West Beach is a powerful wedge beach break and often frequented by thrill seeking body boarders. If you in the area make sure you get yourself a famous Beavers pie as you head out of town.
