Plettenberg Bay is not just a seaside town, it is one of South Africa’s most popular destinations for a summer holiday. Its mild climate combines with the town’s beautiful beaches and all that they have to offer to give you a paradise that you won’t want to leave. Its immediate surrounds offer plenty to see and do, including animal sanctuaries and plenty of adrenaline-based activities. As a resort town, Plett, as it is known by locals, is home to a number of stellar accommodations and restaurants.
Plettenberg Bay may be famous for its laid-back lifestyle but there is always something going on in the town and its surrounds during the year. The Plett Food & Film Festival takes place every July and is a celebration of South African cinema and cuisine. A wide variety of food is showcased here along with a diverse selection of films, ranging from classic cinema to arthouse, and everything in between.
