On Site Facilities

Gamtoos Castle has a garden and secure parking.


Gamtoos Castle is located approximately 20km from central Jeffreys Bay. The town, known as J-Bay, is a beautiful coastal town in the Eastern Cape, about an hour’s drive from Gqeberha. This famous surfing destination is characterised by small town attractions, pristine shell-lined beaches, and the best surfing waves in South Africa. Jeffreys Bay boasts a number of nature reserves in the area.

To the north-east of Jeffrey's Bay lies the Kabeljous Nature Reserve, a walk-about reserve known to anglers for its diversity of fish. It is one of the best preserved estuaries in the Eastern Cape, home to waterfowl, herons, and a variety of waders. In addition, the nearby Seekoei River Nature Reserve lies on the estuary formed by the Seekoei and Swart Rovers, and features over 120 species of birds, red-knobbed coots, buck, and other small animals. The reserve boasts a circular hike and a hide that overlooks the river.
