Plettenberg Bay

Plettenberg Bay is the jewel of The Garden Route and offers the visitor miles of sweeping, un spoilt beaches, a dramatic rocky peninsula, intriguing lagoons and estuaries, towering indigenous forests and unpolluted rivers and sea. With its exceptional climate and beautiful view sites over the Indian Ocean, Plettenberg Bay is perfect for tourists interested in exploring, watching or just lazing.

Situated between the hills covered with indigenous Fynbos and the Bitou River is the tranquil and rural village of Wittedrift, it is a bird and nature lover’s paradise.

From Keurboomstrand to the Robberg Peninsula there are 15 kilometers of beaches punctuated by the river mouth and an island. The river, lagoon, bay and beaches are much used by fishing and boating enthusiasts and offers the best shore based whale watching of the area.

The Crags is situated 20 km’s from Plettenberg Bay and has become one of the must see areas, with polo fields, wildlife sanctuaries, theatre, and an abundance of arts and crafts offerings along its vibrant Cruise the Crags route.

Nature’s Valley is situated 30km’s from Plettenberg Bay and the most unspoilt of all of Bitou. This little bay’s untouched indigenous trees, forest and beautiful unspoilt coastline has been preserved since the first inhabitants of early times. It is also the only town within a national park.

Nestled in the great forests lying at the feet of the fabled Outeniqua and Tsitsikamma mountains is the quaint hamlet of Storms River offering teeming birdlife, vast expanses of Cape flora, delicate eco-systems in wetlands and lagoons, gigantic trees and adrenaline pumping activities such as the world’s highest bungee jump and tree canopy tours.
