Plettenberg Bay Real Estate Property - Western Cape
The Jewel of the Garden Route, Plettenberg Bay, is more than a village, less than a town, tranquil and charming, hospitable and rather special. It was christened "Bahia Formosa" (beautiful Bay) by early Portuguese explorers. The area between Harkerville and Tsitsikamma is a true reflection of the famous Garden Route.
The natural beauty of Plettenberg Bay remains the area's biggest draw card and is characterised by sweeping, unspoiled golden beaches, a dramatic rocky peninsula, intriguing lagoons and estuaries and unpolluted rivers and sea. Dolphins are daily visitors to the shore and in Spring the bay plays host to Southern Right and Humpback Whales.
Prospective visitors to Plettenberg Bay will be thrilled to learn that the ever-popular Robberg Beach No 5 has been awarded “Blue Flag” status. This international award ensures that a specific beach maintains high standard of safety, security and cleanliness.
Inland, the indigenous forest offers hiking trails which wind their way up the wooden river valleys and across the ridges displaying the rich diversity of Fynbos. Plettenberg Bay is also home to Monkeyland, a unique primate sanctuary, Elephant Park, where the visitors are allowed to touch and feed the elephants and Nyati Distillers with its award winning mampoer and witblits.
