Plettenberg Bay ©
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.
Step out of the city life by going to Brenton on Sea and Robberg Nature Reserve. Change things up with these side-trips from Plettenberg Bay: Knysna (Buffalo Bay & Knysna Heads). There's more to do: identify plant and animal life at Birds of Eden.

For ratings, more things to do, other places to visit, and more tourist information, use the Plettenberg Bay travel itinerary creator.
