Restaurante in Jeffreys Bay

As jy lekker wil eet in Jeffreysbaai is daar sommer ’n legio opsies om uit te kies. Dit is soms moeilik om te besluit waar jy jou geld wil gaan spandeer want daar is soveel lekker plekke. Die bekende name is natuurlik ook hier soos Spur, Ocean Basket en John Doreys. Ek is veral mal oor die Ocean Basket se Sushi.

Die eintlike regte restaurante wat wag om ontdek te word is plekke soos:

 

Three Fat Fish

Ons het al die heerlikste Pizzas hier verorber. Three Fat Fish maak ’n Pizza wat jou tone sal laat omkrul. Veral die gesondheids bewuste  sal beindruk wees met die vars, organiese styl wat aangebied word. En die ding lê die hele bord vol. Voorwaar waarde vir jou geld.

Kliek hier vir  Three Fat Fish Webwerf

 

Café Kima

Daarword gefluister dat die beste Lasagne in Jeffreys hier verkrygbaar is. Café Kima is ’n seefront café en cocktail bar. (Verskoon die engels maar cocktail klink net lekkerder as mengeldrankie)

 

The Greek

Die meditireense atmosfeer is wonderlik hier. Sit op die stoep in ’n kuier straat atmosfeer terwyl jy smul aan heerlike Griekse disse

Kliek hier vir The Greek Webwerf

OUTsurance - Click here for a quote!

 

The Mexican

Ek is veral mal oor hul Mexican fillet. ’n Belewenis wat jou smaak bekertjies laat oorloop van die lekkerkry.

Kliek net hier vir Die Mexican se webwerf

 

Ninas

Ek is een van daai ouens wat nogal van verskeidenheid hou. Hier kan jy nou kies en keur vanuit ’n lywige spyskaart. Ek hou van hul Thai groen Kerrie. My vrou sê hul wortelkoek is die beste wat sy nog ooit geeet het.

Kliek hier as jy meer wil weet oor Ninas

Tapas

Hier kry mens ‘n bord kos wat ongetwyfeld versadig maak. As jy wil eet sodat jou oe toetrek as gevolg van ’n styfgetrekte maagvel, is Tappas net die regte plek. Bestel ’n bord Calamari en ek wed jou die deursnee outjie gaan hom nie met gemak kan klaarmaak nie. Gaan ook sonder skoene want jy sit op die strand in die sand, lekker.

Fishing in Jeffreys Bay

Sake in Jeffreysbaai

Jeffreysbaai is ‘n kusdorp ongeveer 80 km vanaf Port Elizabeth. Die laaste vyf jaar is gekenmerk deur ontwikkeling en invloei van mense. Nuwe ontwikkelinge het opgeskiet asof dit die laaste geleentheid was om ooit te ontwikkel en dalk was dit… Die skielike resessie wat oor die wereld gekom het soos ’n dief in die nag het vele eiendomme leeg gelaat. Oop winkels, lee huur huise en onverhuurde werkswinkels is nie ’n onbekende gesig hier nie.
Play More Golf

Oor die algemeen blyk asof sakemanne heel suksesvol sake doen in Jeffreysbaai. Alhoewel die dorpie afhanklik is van toerisme vir die invloei van geld, lyk dit asof inwoners besighede goed ondersteun deur die stil tye van die jaar. Entlik is daar voortdurend ‘n “buzz” in die dorp.

Jong gesinne

Jong gesinne het die laaste paar jaar ingestroom. Die kwaliteit lewe aan die kus is veral ’n aantrekkingskrag. Al hoe meer sien mens dat gesinne aan kusdorpe kom woon om die stede se verkeer, misdaad en gejaag te ontsnap. Sommiges sal selfs ‘n baie hoer inkomste in die stad verruil vir ’n laer inkomste aan die kus ter wille van ‘n hoer kwaliteit lewe saam met hul gesinne. Sommiges moet ongelukkig na ’n paar jaar weer terug stad toe want dit is bloot te moeilik om finansieel te oorleef.

Woon in Jeffreysbaai

Dit is ’n voorreg om in Jeffreysbaai te kan woon. Hier is alles. Dit is nie eers meer nodig om Port Elizabeth toe te ry vir inkopies nie. Ons het ’n  besige winkelkompleks “Fountains Mall” waar jy alles van klere tot krale kan koop. Ons het ’n hoofstraat met interressante winkeltjies waarin jy kan krap en ontdek. Ons het al die mondwater wegneemete plekke waaraan jy kan dink om jou “cravings” te bevredig.

Die gemeenskap is lekker. Mense is vriendelik en gasvry en jy gaan nie sommer dorp toe sonder om iewers vas te haak in ’n gesprek met iemand nie. Kerke is volop sodat jy kan kies en keur waar jy tuis voel om te aanbid. Daar is ook ’n goeie verhouding tussen verskillende denominasies en ’n algemene welwillendheid onder die mense.

Ek skilder nou ’n baie aantreklike prentjie maar hier is ook ongelukkig ook  swakhede. Jeffreysbaai sukkel ook met die probleem van kinders op die strate, dwelm misbruik en misdaad.

Jbay Beach

Ontspanning

Een van die aantrekkingskragte van Jeffreysbaai is die gratis ontspanning. Jy kan afstap strand toe saam met jou gesin en ure se gratis ontspanning geniet sonder om onveilig te voel. Elke middag na werk sien mens gesinne wat swem, speel, visvang of sommer net stap op die strand. Hier vind jy nog geleenthede om by vreemdes en bekendes vas te haak in gesprek.

Dan is daar natuurlik die branders. Jy kan wonderlike branders hier kom plank. Brander ry of “surfing” is baie gewild hier. Surfers kom van heinde en verre om Jeffreys se branders te kom plank.

Visvang in Jeffreys

Vissermanne vang gereeld Kabeljou, Elf en Leervisse. Daar is oral visvang gate waar mens heel vrugtevol kan visvang. Die pier by Astonbaai wat ons “pensioners pier” gedoop het, is ’n gewilde staanplek waar veral Elf lekker kan loop. Kabeljous is die ander gewilde plek waar haaie en kabeljoue gereeld getrek word. Sandhaaie kan nogal ’n bron van frustrasie raak.

In die middae na werk of vroeg oggend vat ek my seuns en gaan vang ons vis. Dit is waardevolle tye waarin ons by mekaar leer en met mekaar kommunikeer.

Of jy nou hier woon, werk of vakansie hou, Jeffreysbaai is ’n aantreklike kusdorp wat vele moontlikhede bied aan die wat wil ontdek.

Surfing Jeffreys Bay


My Surf Board

I bought me self a Fursman 9.2 Feet Quicksilver board a while ago. For three months I admired my beautiful board and dreamed about surfing Jeffreys Bay. I gave it a strategic spot in our living room so that every one could see my baby. So one day I decided that it was now or never. I took my baby, rubbed it with surf wax until my hands were sore. Gone was my shiny new surf board. For some reason I thought it would always stay that way. And then, off to the main beach for some serious surfing jeffreys bay.

My Baby

Surfing Jeffreys Bay Main Beach

So it happened that the board took me for a lesson in patience. I tell you the truth, any one who  think  it is easy to surf hasn’t surfed yet. I’m not talking about you thirteen year old youngsters, I am talking about us, forty three year old dads who have a desire to surf. You must understand me very clear, my back is not that flexible any more, neither the neck nor the legs. So one big wave washed over me and I ended up in a full ballet split position. That hurt. It really hurt! Okay I’ve tried about 40 waves and not even one were able to carry me. I’m really not that big! said my ego. What is the problem?

Surf Lessons

I sat on the beach next to my board and watched the surf-lesson dudes as they try and practise swimming moves on the sand. That’s really silly, I thought, way below my dignity to go and pay for surf lessons or to admit that I’m in my forties and still not able to surf. This is an ego thing I suppose. Well, I watched them as they went into the water and practise their moves and then it struck me. I don’t have to stand up and ride the thing on the first day. Actually I learned something by watching the surf- lesson dudes. Thank you surf-lesson dudes.  For that I will put free links to this page. Maybe I should try some surf lessons for surfing Jeffreys Bay…yea right. I can do it on my own.

Jeffreys Bay Main Beach

It is now three weeks later and I’m starting to get used to my board. I can actually do the cool sit-on-the board stuff and wait for waves. I can also swim in right to the back line without working up sore arms, neck  and a sweat. But the most important aspect of this activity called surfing, keeps avoiding me. One day I came very close to it when I stood up on the board and ride it for two seconds before I fell backwards and made a backward “summy” before I fell on my hip. It was not funny. I was   ST_O_K_ED as in stukkend man!

Body Surf

Today I’m licking my wounds. After an hour of negative talking and thinking I decided to go for a full body surf and it was fantastic to feel the wave beneath my body. Yea I know it is a lame excuse for not surfing but you must understand a man’s frame of mind. I’m working up enough ego and motivation before I will take my board and try the surfing thing again. I’ll keep you posted
