Plettenberg Bay travel guide

Just driving into Plettenberg Bay, or Plett as the locals call the town, you’ll be instantly aware of the endless sea views and most likely drawn towards the beach. Plettenberg Bay was first known as “Bahia  Formosa” (beautiful bay) by early Portuguese explorers, and it truly is a lovely spot on the Garden Route. The town is set above miles of wonderful beaches featuring sandy shores, warm waters and a dramatic rocky peninsula. The natural beauty of the bay is further enhanced by lagoons and rivers, indigenous forests and a temperate climate.

The main road has an attractive resort-town feel with a selection of stores, boutiques, restaurants and cafés, with appealing fountains and public squares and a market with fascinating stalls and delicious street food.

Plettenberg Bay Highlights

  • Animal encounters: Head for the Plett Game Reserve, Birds of Eden (the biggest free flight bird enclosure in the world), Tenikwa Wildlife Awareness Centre or Monkeyland for memorable meetings with amazing animals.
  • Beaches: Whether you head for Central Beach or drive a little further along the coast to the more unspoilt Robberg beach or Keerboomstrand, you’ll find plenty of opportunities to swim, sun bathe, enjoy water sports or simply relax on Plettenberg Bay’s beautiful beaches.
  • Golf: Golfers can enjoy excellent golfing at the Plettenberg Bay Country Club or Goose Valley Golf Club.
  • Hiking: Robberg Nature Reserve, a marine reserve and national monument, has three hiking trails that all offer incredible scenery and views. Here you may encounter the thriving Cape fur seal colony and numerous bird species in the unique and beautiful fynbos.
  • Polo: Plettenberg Bay is one of the prime locations for polo events in South Africa. The South African Polo Association holds many of its annual events at Kurland.
  • Skydiving: See Plett from the skies! Tandem sky diving is available locally with a registered company that specialises in safe but adrenalin-fuelled high-flying fun.
  • Township tours: Take a local walking tour with a registered tour guide and meet some of the community at the small, friendly township near Plett. You can be assured of a warm welcome.
  • Whale, dolphin and seal viewing boat trips: Make use of the services of any of the registered tour operators based near the main beach and head out to sea for a couple of hours to enjoy watching whales and dolphins playing in the ocean, and head for the seal colony which while a little smelly is fascinating. Sea kayaking, diving and canoeing also available
