Great Brak River is located in the heart of the Garden Route, halfway between Mossel Bay and George. The town is known for its shoe factory where the famous Grasshopper shoes have been manufactured for decades. The Great Brak River runs through the town, flowing right around a small island just before it empties into the sea. It is one of the few islands in South Africa that is inhabited.
When you think about Great Brak River, you think about long sand beaches, lovely waves for body surfing, SUP surfing on the river, children playing along the river mouth, beach volleyball, mountain biking, jogging on the beach, fantastic and affordable coffee shops and restaurants, fully booked caravan parks, braai meat, fresh baked liver cakes, Belgium chocolates, Brother’s Connoisseur Coffee, hiking up the Wolwedans trail, holiday food and craft market and Grasshopper factory shops. You think about holiday.
