Jeffrey's Bay Beach
Jeffreys Bay is world renowned for its safe beaches and surfing waves, with many different surf breaks, each possessing its own magic. Surfing spots include Kitchen Window, Tubes, Super Tubes, Point and Albatross. The waves at Super Tubes can get up to about 10 - 12 feet. They are very fast, and as the name suggests, getting tubed is the name of the game. The swell usually runs in the winter months. Boneyards is right next to Supers. You will be able to recognize it with ease, as it is the spot where the waves are breaking almost perfectly.

She inherited the house from her parents and began its transformation after they died.

Her parents left Helen the house. After their deaths Martins started to transform the house and the garden, spending years creating a visionary environment. She is believed to have begun within the house, employing locals Jonas Adams and Piet van der Merwe to make structural alterations, and covering interior surfaces with ground glass. Windows, mirrors and lights further enhanced the illumination inside. Martins also used cement and wire, decorating the interior of her home and later building sculptures in her garden.

Camdeboo National Park

One feels a humbling sense of awe when you’re standing on top of towering dolerite columns overlooking the vast Karoo plains. Particularly so when you find yourself at eye level with a magnificent soaring black eagle and pause to contemplate the fact that these pillars, rising to heights of up to 120 meters, were formed by volcanic and erosive forces over a period of 200 million years.
