Plettenberg Bay is a jewel within the Garden Route and a popular holiday destination all year round for locals and tourists alike. As part of the Garden Route and just off the N2 national road between Port Elizabeth (Gqeberha) and Cape Town, Plettenberg Bay is a unique and pretty seaside town. The delicate pansy shell that is endemic to this part of the coast, and found on Plett’s beaches, is used as the symbol representing the town.
Originally christened by early Portuguese explorers as “Bahia Formosa” meaning Beautiful Bay, Plettenberg Bay offers visitors miles of sweeping beaches, intriguing lagoons, estuaries, indigenous forests and unpolluted rivers and sea.
Host to a number of excellent events, concerts and competitions throughout the year, Plett is definitely worth a stop-over.Read More
