Plettenberg Bay is a premier holiday destination situated on the Southern Cape coast of South Africa. Plett, as it is popularly known, has sweeping golden beaches, the iconic Robberg Peninsula, intriguing lagoons and estuaries, towering indigenous forests and unpolluted rivers, vineyards and wine estates.
With its moderate climate and beautiful view sites over the Indian Ocean, Plett’s about lazy sun-filled beach holidays (on any one of our three Blue Flag beaches) and adrenalin-filled activities ranging from mountain biking to abseiling and diving with the seals. You’ll be spoilt for choice with restaurants and shopping experiences, and things to do! Plett is home to wildlife sanctuaries, game reserves, whale and dolphin watching, canoeing up the Bitou and Keurbooms rivers, sailing, boating … and so much more.
Known as “Bahia Formosa” (beautiful bay) by early Portuguese explorers, the “Plett feeling” today includes the wine estates and hiking trails in the Harkerville Forest to bungee jumping at Storms River – and everything in between.
Situated between the hills covered with indigenous Fynbos and the Bitou River is the tranquil and rural village of Wittedrift, a bird and nature lover’s paradise.
From Keurboomstrand to the Robberg Peninsula there are 15 kilometres 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 offer the best shore-based whale watching of the area.
