Plettenberg Bay 365

Considered by many to be the jewel in the Garden Route’s crown, Plettenberg Bay is situated on a slope looking out onto the Indian Ocean – making for stunning views of the bay and surrounding mountainscapes.

A mild and pleasant climate and a combination of small-town charm and big-city amenities make Plettenberg Bay a great base from which to explore the area. In the town itself you’ll find a plethora of cafes, boutiques and restaurants to keep you busy, while nearby wine farms and unspoilt beaches offer respite from the crowds.  

A major attraction for locals during the summer holidays, Plettenberg Bay has earned a reputation as a leisure hub, and is busiest during December. But if you’re keen on a quieter experience, and want to catch sight of the whales and dolphins that frequent the coast, visit between June and October. Those seeking unique or adrenaline-fueled antics will be spoilt for choice – you can abseil, skydive and lay claim to having experienced the world’s highest bungee jump or visit the world’s only multi-species free-roaming primate sanctuary.
