Nice beach with lovely shaded areas if you need that. Clear water with good snorkeling towards the rock area. Worth a visit if you're in that area. Take food and drink as there isn't anything close by.

Good, moderately busy but quiet beach with a number of small bars and hotels. Nothing intrusive. Thirty minute walk from town. Snorkelling not very good, but swimming fine.

Beautiful unspoilt beach with crystal clear water lapping on to it. Great snorkelling opportunities. Manta Rays, turtles, and a large variety of fish are to be seem.

This beach has very few people on it most times and is excellent for swimming/snorkeling. We enjoyed hiking here as well!

Lovely beach with generally calm and crystal clear water - although on occasion there can be a bit of an undertow, on the days we spent there, there was always a bit of a welcome breeze. Several guys renting chairs/loungers

We stayed at the north end of Lower Bay Beach for 2 weeks in early December. We walked to/from Port Elizabeth at least a dozen times. It is a lovely walk along the beach ... no need to climb up high to the main road... More
