Garden Route DestinationsVictoria Bay, Garden Route

Victoria Bay (or "Vic Bay" as it is called by those in the know) is one of the smallest bays on the Garden Route. Traveling along the N2 National Road, Victoria Bay is 3km off the N2 and situated between George and Wilderness.

Victoria Bay is a special find - small, beautiful beach, almost hidden between George and Wilderness. The Outeniqua Tjoe-Choo steam train used to pass through Victoria Bay daily, taking passengers on a scenic train ride between George and Knysna. Sadly, it is no longer running.

Basically a cove enclosed by cliffs, Victoria Bay is a small resort made up of a number of cottages clustered around the water front. The gently sloping beach makes bathing safe and big waves from far out give surfers a particularly long ride.

Victoria Bay beach has a safe bathing area and it's own tidal pool and jetty, is also close to some beautiful areas where there are walks and trails for the whole family to enjoy. Victoria Bay Beach is one of the most famous beaches in the vicinity for safe bathing and is ideal for angling and a challenge to top surfers.

There are natural paddling pools amongst the rocks where children can spend many happy hours playing. Young and old can splash about or quietly observe the little fish in the tidal pools.
