Robberg Nature Reserve
A definite highlight! I would call it a must visit several times at different hours of the day. Very high chance of land-based whale spotting, seals, birds, etc. Well marked 2,5 or 4 hours roundtrip.
Nature’s Valley, so close – Robinson Crusoe Feeling!
Feel like the first men on earth in this nature’s paradise. You have to do the hiking trails to the secret hidden lagoon. That’s another reason to stay (much) longer.
Salt River Lagoon, a short but extremely rewarding hike! Adventurous. Cross the river and continue to the Salt River Lookout.
Keurbooms Lagoon and Lookout Beach
On any sunny day it’s a must! If you are lucky you may pick up a rare pansy shell which is iconic to Plettenberg Bay.
Central / Main Beach
Crowded in peak season but still beautiful during off season. Very safe for swimming.
Another pure delight in Plettenberg Bay!
The beautiful village of Keurbooms nestled in the trees at the beach! Only a stone’s throw away.
