Activities in Plettenberg Bay

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.

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.

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.  The Robberg Peninsula is home to a large Cape fur seal colony, seals can often be seen in the surf off Robberg Beach.
