About Van Stadens Beach

Van Stadens, as an area, lies about 45 kilometres from Port Elizabeth; almost halfway to Jeffrey’s Bay. It is characterised by the deep gorge, the Van Stadens River and the stunning beach at this river’s mouth.

Van Stadens Beach has plenty to offer, and is favoured by families with children, holiday-makers and locals alike. There is a large lagoon, which is ideal for safe swimming, particularly for younger ones. Fishing and paddling are also popular pastimes here.

There are enormous sand dunes that tower over the beach, inviting young and old to climb them and then roll or sand board down for a fun and adrenalin-fuelled experience. Lifeguards are on hand throughout the peak season.

Small boats can make their way up the river.
