Oyster Bay is one of the undiscovered gems in the Kouga with its endless beaches and close access to nearby towns like St Francis Bay and Humansdorp.

This part of the Eastern Cape has an extremely diverse coastal and marine life caused mainly by being a transition zone between cold and warm sea currents.

As a result some unique ecological and archaeological developments exist, such as the Oyster Bay Dune Bypass System with two parallel ridges, 12 and 16km long and as high as 177 metres, together with some unique examples of dune fynbos on the dune ridges that hosts 24 threatened plant species.

Early Stone Age tools were discovered in the Oyster Bay middens and ancient fish traps are still visible during low tide.
