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.
Get outdoors at Garden Route (Tsitsikamma, Knysna, Wilderness) National Park and Knysna Lagoon. Do your shopping at The Potter and Elephant Walk Farm Stall. Venture out of the city with trips to Knysna (Buffalo Bay, Featherbed Nature Reserve, & more). There's still lots to do: stroll through Tenikwa Wildlife Awareness Centre and enjoy the sand and surf at Plettenberg Beach.
