About Plettenberg Bay

With the enviable location of South Africa's Southern coast in its arsenal of pull factors, Plettenberg Bay is one of the country's finest beach retreats. The golden sands and rolling waves instil the ultimate sense of relaxation and there is no better way to spend a day here than lying on the beach with a good book whilst soaking up some of those warm African rays. Yet, there is far more than just that on offer here. From wildlife to extreme sports to boat trips, there is a never-ending list of fun for visitors to choose from and to top it all off, given its relative lack of international tourism, this beautiful region still maintains its traditional cultural identity.
