Peaceful and quiet, one of the most quietest spots to relax and swim in the area. Good for little kids and groups looking to relax and rest

This beach is amazing and beautiful. It have a good area of sand and is very quiet. It have a aquatic park to kids, small but good to spend some hours and a lot of bars and restaurants to have a drink.

This was our firts visit to J'Bay and Dolphin Beach is a great place to spend the day. Clean beach and the water is more than warm enough to remain in the waves for hours. Also a lot of reatautants close by to get something to eat. Also try a surf lesson!!

My family and I spent some time at this beach. The water is lovely - not too cold or too warm. The beach is just incredibly packed and busy.

nice beach in Jeffreys Bay but not particularly quiet... it is unfortunately kind of busy. We had to change place twice as people were either taking pictures or guys playing football like 2m next to us so I did not feel 100% comfortable so that I could enjoy and being relaxed. It is also a pity that you are only... More

What a beautiful beach. Quiet out of season. A perfect place to take long walks and pick up shells. The parking lot and restaurants near the beach are clean and tidy. Wind was cold although the sun was warm. Best time to visit according to a local is February.

This beach is within reach of many shops and restaurants. Waves are a lot smaller here which is good if you are after a swim or if you like to beginn to surf. I had the feeling that the car park is a bit dodgy, and I would be very careful if you park here, especially at nights.
