Recent Company News

Plettenberg Bay is the Orange County of South Africa, the wealthy own holiday homes there that are a stones throw away from some of the expensive golf clubs and polo fields. The beautiful scenery and fine restaurants gives Plettenberg Bay a piece of the most sought after residents in the world. The key is that this coastal town does not skimp on anything, accommodation, food, sport, extravagance and all out beauty.

In the article below Kadence Buchanan talks about Plettenberg Bay and the various attractions it has to offer to a traveler or a holiday maker. This town along the Garden Route is one of the main attractions yet the area as a whole is celebrated as South Africa's most beautiful coast line.

Play on the Silver Beaches of Plettenberg Bay

Author: Kadence Buchanan

Situated between George and Port Elizabeth on the south coast of the Garden Route is the growing town of Plettenberg Bay, a firm favorite among holidaymakers throughout South Africa. As a holiday resort, it has grown enormously over the past 10 years. So much so that more and more people are settling there permanently, getting away from the bustle of the big cities.

Plettenberg Bay has a climate all of its own - wonderful long hot summer days, which is one of the reasons it is so popular as a holiday resort. The winters can be very mild, without the harsh storms experienced in Cape Town and surrounding areas.

The beaches in Plettenberg Bay are wonderful - long stretches of white sand, perfect for sunbathing or long slow walks. Robberg Beach is a favorite for those walks - you can walk towards the point and look at the luxury holiday
homes overlooking the bay. The sight of a group of dolphins surfing the waves on Robberg Beach is completely unforgettable. On the other side of the Beacon Isle Hotel is Central Beach, a favorite with the teenagers and families with young children.

There are always lots of holiday activities on the beaches, the water is warm and the waves are great for bodysurfing. Lifeguards are always vigilant on the Plettenberg Bay beaches, but one should always be careful when swimming, particularly at "The Wedge" (further up from Central Beach) where the current can be very strong. Towards the other end of Central Beach is Hoby Beach, popular with amateur yachtsmen who can launch their hobycats from this spot. And a real treat is watching the whales with their young, lazing in the warm waters of the bay during spring and early summer. Plettenberg Bay is a magical place for young and old alike.

Even if you're not keen on the beach, there is plenty to do in Plettenberg Bay. The Main Street through the town is always a hive of activity, and you can stop in at one of the many coffee shops along the way, from "Bean There Bun That" at the end of Main Street, to "Europa" further up. There is always a friendly greeting from the owners, and the shops offer all the variety you could wish for. There is also the shopping centre on the way to the Keurbooms River area, offering every type of shopping experience you could wish for.

Plettenberg Bay has plenty of restaurants too, ranging from the very exclusive to convenience food - whatever you fancy, you'll be sure to find just what you are looking for. A number of clubs cater to the young and the not-so-young, staying open until the early hours of the morning.

Holiday accommodation is also available to meet every budget - from the very exclusive Guest Houses scattered throughout the town, to middle of the road B&B's or budget self-catering family accommodation such as San Marino, on the banks of the Keurbooms River, a few kilometers out the central part of Plettenberg Bay.
