General Information

Plettenberg Bay is truly the jewel of The Garden Route, situated about 210kms from Port Elizabeth and +/- 600km from Cape Town.  Originally christened “Bahia Formosa”, meaning Beautiful Bay, by early Portuguese explorers, Plettenberg Bay offers holiday makers a wonderful holiday experience.  The town has miles of sweeping golden beaches, the dramatic Robberg Peninsula, intriguing lagoons and estuaries, indigenous forests and unpolluted rivers and sea to entice visitors.

The peaceful little village of Wittedrift is situated between the hills covered with indigenous fynbos and the Bitou River and is a bird and nature lover’s paradise.  From Keurboomstrand to the Robberg Peninsula there are 15 kilometres of beaches disrupted only by the river mouth and an island. The river, lagoon, bay and beaches are an absolute paradise for fishing and boating enthusiasts and the area offers the best shore based whale watching of the area.

Activities

The delicate pansy shell is endemic to this part of the coast, and is used as the symbol representing the town.  Looking for these shells on Plettenberg Bay beaches is a popular activity amongst visitors and locals alike.

Activities in the area are plentiful with fabulous trails for hikers, mountain bikers and horse riders. Water sports include sailing in the safe waters of the Bay, superb rock and surf fishing, paddling and scuba diving.

Plettenberg Bay has a very rich marine life. Schools of playful dolphins can regularly be seen surfing the waves off the local beaches. Whale watching is a very popular attraction during the months July to December. There are boat-based tours available as well as marine safaris which provide a chance to see these gentle giants up close.

The massive Robberg Nature Reserve is the perfect spot for whale and dolphin viewing, bird watching, hiking trails and exploring the Nelson Bay Cave. The Robberg is a must see for all visitors with the Peninsula being home to a large Cape fur seal colony.  Seals can often be seen in the surf off Robberg Beach.

The activities directory can provide more information on what is on offer.
