This small but colorful seaside suburb of Jeffreys Bay is a beautiful example of the unspoiled seashore of this area... It has developed fairly rapidly over the past few years and is the place to build if you want a seaside getaway.... The sea is azure and the sand is beautifully and delicately colored... Close to the center of Jeffreys Bay and also close enough to Port Elizabeth should you long for the big city,, Paradise Beach . A place to chill and relax .

I life in the nearby Jeffreys Bay but prefer to walk along the long sandy beach of Paradise Beach.
It is a safe 5Km walk because the houses of Paradise overlooks the beach.
On the eastern border of Paradise is the Seekoei lagoon, a favorite picnic and watersport spot.
Because it is a safe sandy beach with good waves and wind, it is a favorite spot for kite surfing

Just went for sight seeing. The place is still unspoilt and great place to visit for holidays. Great surfing takes place around here I'm told by the locals.

I have asked many seasoned beach travelers about their feelings about this really special beach and the feeling is unanimous that Paradise Beach is so special due to the fact that it's undiscovered. Over the past eight years I have often walked in ecxcess of 10 kilometres along a perfectly sloped almost flat beach with the finest white sand.
Best of all is that most of the time you may only encounter one or two other people as you walk towards Cape St Francis. Typically it's unususual to even encounter one other person just before the the river that runs into the sea. Here the turbulent water creates a paradise for the jet ski crowd from the jet setting St Francis glitterati. Yes, the two villages are very different in culture and the embracing of solitude. Paradise beach people enjoy walking, running, cycling and swimming with the dolphins. Motor boats, jet ski's and Range Rovers are abundant in the affluent Cape St Francis. The water temperature ranges from 18 to 23 degrees Celsius and swimming in Winter is great. The slope going into the ocean is quite even, so 2 meters of depth requires you to venture about 40 meters into the ocean. Dolphins wave surf frequently in the early mornings and shark activity is minimal. I've frequently exceeded 200 metres into the ocean in order to enjoy the calm water beyond the waves. There is no reef or much in terms of rocks, making this ideal for swimming. No life guards translates into peace and quiet. There is nothing more irritating than a neurotic life guard with a whistle. Swimming is for strong swimmers with no dolphin phobias!
