As one of South Africa's most popular beach destinations, the resort town of Plettenberg Bay comes to life in December and January, when the holiday homes fill up with domestic tourists and foreigner visitors.
Visiting Brenton on Sea and Robberg Nature Reserve will get you outdoors. You'll get in some beach time at Bollard Bay and Buffalo Bay. Venture out of the city with trips to Mosaic Outdoor Market (in Sedgefield) and Knysna (Knysna Heads, The Waterfront Knysna Quays, & more). There's lots more to do: stroll through Birds of Eden, enjoy the sand and surf at Plettenberg Beach, buy something for everyone on your list at Old Nick Village, and look for gifts at La Carla Mask Atelier.
