If the Western Cape's world famous Garden Route had a capital it would be the seaside wonder that is Plettenberg Bay. Finding Plettenberg Bay accommodation can be difficult since there are so many areas in this town that deserve exploring! Plan your holiday well and there's no doubt that this special coastal spot is the perfect place for a family holiday or couple's getaway.
The biggest highlight of any trip to Plett, as this town is often called, is of course the sea - and what a highlight it is! There are three amazing beaches all within a few minutes of the city centre and each with great views and warm water. Lookout beach is best for swimming and Robberg beach best for walking. Robberg is a Blue Flag beach so you know that the water will be clean and lifeguards will be on duty. Often you can see pods of dolphins playing in the waves - they are attracted by the warm water and travel past Plettenberg Bay en route to their breeding areas of Mozambique. In addition to the swimming and surfing promise that makes this town so popular there are other natural wonders that merit your attention: Plett is well known for the Robberg Nature reserve, boat trips that take you out to see whales in their natural environment and horseback safaris in the Plettenberg Bay nature reserve. If you have kids then a trip to the nationally well known Plett Monkeyland is a must!
Beyond things natural Plettenberg Bay has much more to offer. The main road is a popular culinary adventure with a variety of restaurants offering affordable and good food. Nightlife also abounds for those who want to party - this town is a popular destination for the young and adventurous. Shopping is also well catered for in Plett - in addition to a shopping mall with a great selection of stores there are boutique shops along the main road in the town centre. You won't regret staying in some Plettenberg Bay accommodation - this town is a great place to spend your holiday.
