Found on South Africa's south east coast, holidays to Plettenberg Bay offer a glorious stretch of coastline set in the heart of the Garden Route. Pretty 'Plett', as it's known locally, delivers a mild climate all year round and safe swimming beaches perfect for all. Expect dramatic scenery as a seemingly perpetual stretch of crisp white sand falls away into clear blue seas, overlooked by a mighty mountain backdrop.
Plett is perhaps best known for its whale watching - something not to be missed. Southern right whales pass through the area each year between June and October, with some onlookers lucky enough to see the colossal mammals breach the waves. Relax on the stunning Robberg Beach to take in the spectacle, or enjoy cliff-top hikes at Robberg Marine and Nature Reserve.
Whale watching is hardly the only attraction in the area, however, with a host of other activities are found nearby along the Garden Route, including bungee jumping, golf, mountain biking, tree top canopy tours, hiking and scuba diving.
