Plettenberg Bay

The Garden Route has a Mediterranean Maritime climate, with moderately hot summers, and mild to chilly winters.

Any time of the year is good for visiting the area, depending if you enjoy a peaceful retreat during the winter months or a bustling holiday destination during the summer.

Originally christened "Bahia Formosa" (beautiful bay) by early Portuguese explorers, Plettenberg Bay can now be accessed by first class national roads, by sea or by scheduled air flights.

The great forests lying at the feet of the fabled Outeniqua and Tsitsikamma mountains are the gateway to the incredible indigenous African wealth of Plettenberg Bay, which lies on South Africa's spectacular south coast 210 kms from Port Elizabeth and +/- 600 km from Cape Town.

The area is of course a sports paradise and boasts fabulous trails for hikers, mountain bikers, horse riders and canoeists.

A wide range of accommodation offers luxury hotels & exclusive country retreats.
