Plettenberg Bay Lagoon

I had just arrived in South Africa and I was browsing the internet for some places to visit. There were many beautiful destinations but one kept catching my eye, Plettenberg Bay Lagoon.

The day was sunny and the air was crisp. The waves were crashing onto the wet sand and seagulls flew over head. It felt like heaven on earth to be in such a beautiful place. The everchanging Keurboomsriver Mouth just meters away.

Every day you're sure to find locals walking or running along with their dogs for some fresh air or simply just enjoy life by having coffee over looking the lagoon or ocean. 

book your holiday with us and spend a day at the lagoon with no set itinerary other than to spend as much time there as possible.

It is really lovely walking around the lagoon at sunrise and seeing how different each spot looks before coming back again in the late afternoon when it is all lit up with sunset colors.

Robberg Beach

The biggest difference between Plettenberg Bay and any other town is its proximity to the sea.

Plett Main Beach

Plettenberg Bay is a paradise. With all the fantastic restaurants, hotels and activities you’ll have no trouble making your holiday perfect!

Plett Main Beach has all the ingredients for a perfect holiday. It’s not only an impressive, picturesque location with crystal clear waters but it also boasts some of Africa’s best restaurants like fat fish and bars at the beach.

Plett Main Beach is a wonderful spot for families with children. The lifeguards are always on duty and the beach water is very calm compared to Wilderness, Nature’s Valley, Tsitsikamma and Sedgefield.

So it's very safe for swimming as well. I remember when my son was learning to bodysurf here at Plett, he made some great progress!

The water was clear and calm. The air smelled like sea salt. We have been to beaches before, but the kids were happier here and that’s all that mattered. Eva looked at me with a sense of pride in her eyes as she ran up from behind me after finishing her trek on Robberg hiking trail to the Point on the other side of the bay. I smiled back at her as I played with my three-year old daughter who was playing in the sand by our feet; making sculptures with her daddy for hours!

Nature’s Valley Beach

A visit to Nature’s Valley might not be your typical holiday but it will make any trip worth while. Want to learn more about this incredible location?
