About Elands Bay

The little resort town of Elands Bay is world famous for its wonderful surfing opportunities so it is popular with the young and adventure-seeking visitor.

Verlorenvlei, meaning "lost marsh", is a beautiful wetland and important birding area inland from Elands Bay. There are numerous good birding sites from roads alongside the vlei. Notable species include Purple Gallinule, Eastern White Pelican, African Spoonbill, Cape Shoveller, African Fish Eagle, Goliath and purple Herons and European bee-eater, which breed in this area. The Bobbejaar Mountains have produced valuable archaeological fins and superb examples of rock art at Elands cave.

Crayfish Diving in Elands Bay is very popular during the crayfish season from middle of November to end of April. Permits are available at any Post Office.
