Location and History

Kayser's Beach is situated 45 km south west of East London, approximately 40 km from the East London airport. Follow the R72 towards Port Alfred passing Kidd's Beach intersection until the Kayser's Beach turnoff from the R72 and continue on this good all weather gravel road, approximately 9 km, passing the turnoff to Christmas Rock and later past the turnoff to Seavale, until you enter the neat, well laid out, Village of Kayser's Beach. Follow the main road, Kayser's Drive, which meanders, first to the left, then to the right, up to the four way Stop. Continue through the intersection now with a slow curve to the right until the Tee intersection with Snipe Drive, turn left and the entrance to a little piece of paradise is on your left.

SITE HISTORY
From the Book by T. V. Bulpin, "Discovering Southern Africa" 1986 edition, Kayser's Beach is described as "Named after John Kayser who owned the land during the 1880s, Kayser's Beach is a popular resort for fishermen. Their wives, however, seem to spend most of their time sitting around watching, presumably to see that their husbands catch only fish!" Deed of Grant 34/1928, dated 1928-10-23, was made to Joseph Franklin Kayser after whom the Village "Kayser's Beach" is named.
