This is one of the best beaches that you will find anywhere. Lovely soft sand, beautiful warm water and few people. Access is via a road running parallel or one can walk along the coastal trail from Port Elisabeth via Princess Margaret beach. There are...More
Lower Bay beach is spectacular and has very few people on it, although many locals spend the day there on the weekends. There are a couple of beach bars right on the beach. I would highly recommend De Reef, which has good food and great...More
Very pretty. Rocky in parts of it. Nice vibe and quiet. I went when there were no cruise ships. There's been a cave-in at the path to the beach, so it is unfortunately harder to get to from Princess Margaret Beach than it once was.
Despite the favorable reviews of the other beaches, this one has the calmest water, with no undertow, and the ability to walk out pretty far offshore. With Keegans Bar nearby for casual food and drinks, it is the best place to go, not touristy or...More
Couldn’t believe how quiet this beach is. Hardly a sole on it.
Snorkelling was best at the top end closest to Princess Margaret beach.
Saw lion fish, small Moray eels, small barracuda and loads more fish.
Also found lots of sand dollars and urchins.
As per the norm, Lower bay is by far one of the most beautiful beaches on the island. I would recommend Keegans for a drink a bite to eat if you're passing through Lower Bay anytime soon. I had a lobster salad and it was...More

We stayed at the north end of Lower Bay Beach for 2 weeks in early December. We walked to/from Port Elizabeth at least a dozen times. It is a lovely walk along the beach ... no need to climb up high to the main road ... the walk takes about 15 minutes. Several things to note. Port Elizabeth is on Admiralty Bay. To get to Lower Bay you must pass the headland that separates Admiralty Bay from Princess Margaret Beach. Hurricane Matthew wiped out a 100 foot long section of the walkway so you must go into knee-deep water for a bit. You will want to wear crocs, water shoes, flip-flops or an old pair of running shoes you don't mind getting wet. There is another headland to get around to get from PM Beach to Lower Bay ... it is a short steepish climb that brings you out on the road maybe 150 metres from Lower Bay. If you are interested in snorkelling, there is a small reef right at the headland that divides PM Beach & Lower Bay Beach ... there is lots to see. Lastly there are several restaurants on Lower Bay Beach ... our favourite was "La Plage" at the north end and nicely located right on the beach (as the name would suggest!). Enjoy your trip. I am envious!
