|A modern resort of perfect beaches in the centre of the Garden Route,
surrounded by the Outeniqua and Tsitsikamma Mountain Ranges and engulfed
by indigenous forests. South Africa's premier coastal pleasure paradise
Plettenberg Bay is a holidaymaker's paradise and the ecotourist's
dream. Its eternal spring weather ensures days of warm comfort and
lazy, pleasurable evenings seldom found anywhere else in South Africa.
For the nature-lover there is an unparalleled wealth of fauna and
flora. The rugged Outeniqua and Tsitsikamma mountains form the backdrop
for an area encompassing no fewer than fifteen private and public
nature reserves, (Tsitsikamma National Park) each with its own treasures,
beckoning you to spend time to explore and to experience the pleasures
it has to offer.
Over twenty days of each month are spent in splendid South African
sunshine. The greater Plettenberg Bay area is home to vast expanses
of unspoilt Cape flora, delicate ecosystems in wetlands and lagoons,
forests of unsurpassed beauty.
As if to add their stamp of approval to this playground, the great
whales of the southern oceans appear regularly in these waters.
Horse trails, bicycle trails, golf, tennis, diving, sailing, canoeing
on the lagoon and lovely walks are available for energetic visitors.
The more relaxed visitor can visit one of the many excellent restaurants,
or just lounge around the pool at one of the hotels.
