Little Bay Surf Guide

Little Bay in Western Cape is an exposed beach break that has inconsistent surf with no particular seasonal pattern. The best wind direction is from the east. Groundswells more frequent than windswells and the ideal swell direction is from the southwest. Waves at the beach are both lefts and rights. Good surf at all stages of the tide. When the surf is up, it can get quite busy in the water. Beware of rips and rocks.
