Plettenburg Bay

A scenic hour’s drive from George Airport and two hours from Port Elizabeth Airport, Plettenberg Bay and environs stretch from Harkerville through to Nature's Valley and Storms River, some 80km along the N2 highway.

Originally christened “Bahia  Formosa” (beautiful bay) by early Portuguese explorers, Plettenberg Bay offers the visitor miles of sweeping, unspoiled beaches, a dramatic rocky peninsula, intriguing lagoons and estuaries, towering indigenous forests and unpolluted rivers and ocean. 

With its exceptional climate and beautiful views over the Indian Ocean, the town is one of South Africa’s prime holiday destinations.

Nestled in the great forests at the foot of the fabled Outeniqua Mountains and Tsitsikamma Mountains, the quaint hamlet of Storms River is teeming with birdlife, vast expanses of Cape Flora, delicate eco-systems within wetlands and lagoons, gigantic trees and adrenaline-pumping activities such as the world's highest bungee jump and tree canopy tours.

Be inspired by Plettenberg Bay with its abundance of unique attractions, including kilometers of pristine beaches, land and boat based whale and dolphin watching, international sporting events, world-class 18-hole championship golf courses, spectacular walks and hikes, village and township experiences and many magnificent country meanders to keep you spellbound.

Adrenalin junkies are spoiled for choice with world renowned land, air and water  sporting activities, such as horse riding, game viewing, birding, motorcycle excursions, quad biking, adventure boating, sailing and abseiling.
