Area Information:

The town of Plettenberg Bay lies almost on the border of the Western and Eastern Cape. Built on the hillside, most of the town is on a steep slope leading down to the sea, which means that regardless of where you find yourself accommodated, you will be treated to spectacular views of the bay and surrounding hills and mountains.

Plettenberg Bay has a relatively long history for a South African town, having been regularly visited by Portuguese explorers during the 15th and 16th centuries. Signs of their visits abound, and history enthusiasts can view artifacts such as the remains of the Gonzales Wreck in the town. Early European settlers to the area arrived in the late 1700’s, and have also left behind many fascinating historical relics, for example the Old Rectory, built by the Dutch East India Trading company in 1776, and Forest Hall, a privately owned stately home, built in 1864 by William Henry Newdgate.

In modern times, Plettenberg Bay has gained somewhat of a reputation as a pleasure seeker hotspot, and has many leisure activities on offer. From polo at Kurland, to yachting at the Keurbooms River mouth and marina, to less high brow activities like swimming and water sports in the warm, gentle waters. In fact, when you enter the town proper, a monument to one of the symbols of this lush, almost tropical bay greets you: a bronze statue of the dolphins that play in the warm waters just off the coast.

We had an awesome time at the guest house. The hostess Jane was absolutely wonderful. She even contacted us to confirm what time we would be arriving. The premises were exceptionly clean and quite homely. Jane was very forthcoming with information about site in the area and even arranged for a discount for us at the Elephant Sanctuary. We will definitely stay there again. It was a home away from home. We will definitely recommend it to our firends and family.

The room was tidy, the service attentive, a couple of items were basic but at the price I was paying it was more than I expected to receive. All told a pleasant experience. Bit hard to find directions on websites for people not familaar with the area.

Gorgeous sea and beach scenery all around. Plenty to see and places to discover.

I'd strongly recommend Zinzi restaurant for anyone who is looking for a night of serinity with fine wine and being schooled at the choice of wine on offer by the enthusiastic patron, Khanyo.
