| WATERFRONT PLAN FOR PLETTENBERG BAY
So it looks like the small boat harbour is finally on the cards after many years of speculation. For a long time we have known that a harbour is being planned, but what may not be as well known is that the proposed harbour forms part of a larger overall beachfront development plan.
The Urban Integration Plan, of which the upgrading of Main Street is a key component. Also contains a detailed vision for a beachfront development stretching from the planned harbour off Robberg Beach, across Central Beach, all the way to Look-out Beach. It is an imaginative vision that embraces all the beach-based activities that have already found a home somewhere in our bay, from commercial fishing to leisure pursuits, as well as adding a host of new ones.
The Beacon Isle Area
The harbour itself would comprise four elements. A - A proposed deep sea harbour for fishing vessels and ocean-going yachts to be inserted between two rocks spurs that project into the ocean off Beacon Isle. B - A harbour-front development creating a backdrop to the yacht basin. C - A riverfront development along the Piesang River. D - The integration of the Beacon Isle Hotel into the whole complex with a proposed new harbour pier extending outwards.
The waterfront plan for Plettenberg Bay then aims to provide a way of experiencing the full beauty of our coastline by linking our beaches in a pedestrian-friendly way while, while still preserving the unique character of each.
