Plettenberg Bay is a popular holiday destination with locals and overseas tourist alike. Well known as the destination of choice for South Africa’s rich and famous, “Plett” as it is called by locals, can be a little more expensive than the surrounding areas, but is still well worth a visit. For beach lovers there are three magnificent white, sandy beaches: Roberg Beach, Look Out and Keurboomstrand, which between them have over 14 kilometres of glorious beaches with dramatic rocky peninsulas cascading into the warm Indian Ocean. If scuba diving is your passion, there are numerous options both for advanced and open water divers. The Plettenberg Bay area is home to over 100 species of fish and some of the best soft coral reefs in the world. Bird and nature lovers can enjoy the Birds of Eden Sanctuary and Monkeyland - a world renowned, free roaming sanctuary for primates as well as whale watching in season

    That beach looks lovely to take a long walk on! And great that you can visit so many animal sanctuaries nearby.

    A fine new page on this popular holiday destination. It's interesting that they try to de-humanise the monkeys before releasing them into the forest -- certainly a very good idea.

    Thanks, Mariana. I was lucky with that Motmot and I see you're lucky to be living in such a pretty spot with birds and other assorted animals. Rode on an elephant ages ago and was not comfy as you say!
