The best attractions & experiences in Plettenberg Bay

Plettenberg Bay is all about the natural splendour. Of course, beach saunters and forest hikes can be done at your leisure, but opt for another mode of transport and you’ll be given a whole new perspective on the endless beauty that Plett has to offer. 

Struggling with the balance aspect of surfing? Why not try your hand at bodyboarding; getting out in the ocean will change up how you see the bay.     

On forest trails you’ll find yourself constantly looking up, but what if you were to see it from above? Book a canopy tour to glide through the treetops and learn the ecology of this primeval tract as you go – it’s definitely one way to give your neck a rest from all that straining. Or, for a slightly more relaxed way to experience the spellbinding surrounds, take the Woodcutters Journey. This guided drive is one for the history buffs. 

Wildlife and South Africa, they’re inextricable. And, in Plett it’s no different. With such an incredible array of species calling this country their home, it’s quite easy to forget to give a monkeys about the monkeys. On a safari you may have bigger fish to fry, but in Monkeyland Primate Sanctuary these pesky primates take centre stage.

Birds, are too, often overlooked. You don’t have to be an avid birdwatcher to enjoy a trip to Birds of Eden. This is the largest single dome free flight aviary in the world making it something of a spectacle.

You can tailor your activities to suit your own wants and needs by selecting from our experience packages. For example, choose a ‘foodie’ package and you’ll be treated to a wine tasting and tapas pairing here – or, simply an afternoon well spent in our eyes.
