The town of Plettenberg is spread across rolling hills and surrounded by the dense Tsitsikamma Forest that plunges dramatically down to the golden sands and azure waters of the bay. Attracting vacationmakers from across South Africa, the upmarket restaurants and bars dish up superb seafood with spectacular views, making this a perfect spot to indulge in some of the region’s finest flavors.
After sampling the exquisite food and drink of Plettenberg Bay, a world of staggering vistas and diverse activity awaits, with quad-biking, horse riding and nature walks. And for a taste of big game viewing on the Garden Route, head to the Plettenberg Bay Game Reserve to catch sight of over 35 species of game including lion, hippo, giraffe, buffalo, crocodile and the endangered white rhino.
