• The Plettenberg

Plettenberg Bay Holidays

From sweeping, pale golden beaches and crystal blue oceans to plunging craggy cliffs, deep emerald indigenous forests and mystical lagoons, Plettenberg Bay is a contrasting feast for the eyes.

Benefiting from warm yet pleasant summers and wet but mild winters, the natural beauty of Plettenberg Bay is made even more perfect by the range of outdoor activities available here; take a refreshing swim in the warm ocean or rivers; visit bird and elephant sanctuaries; surf the rolling waves; and snorkel the coral reefs and marine trail in Tsitsikamma National Park. Feeling brave? For the ultimate buzz of exhilaration, why not try a bungee jump from Bloukrans Bridge – the world's highest bungee jump, at 216 metres from bridge to gorge floor – surely one to tick off your bucket list.
