Plettenberg Bay is home to six international Blue Flag beaches – some of the best in South Africa – white sand, blue waters teeming with marine life and beautiful views across the bay to the Tsitsikamma Mountains. If this is your idea of a perfect holiday, regardless of the season, then Plett is the place for you! Summer brings exciting activities: surfing, stand-up paddling, swimming, snorkelling and sailing, while the winter months are suited for scuba diving, whale watching, paddling and even some Sardine Run action. The beaches of Plettenberg Bay are the place to be – year-round. Here are eight of Plettenberg Bay’s accommodation options that are a hop and a skip from our gorgeous South African beaches:
