The Garden Route of South Africa is said to stretch from Mossel Bay all the way over to St. Francis. Halfway along this route is Plettenberg Bay, an excellent spot to stop for travelers touring the entire attraction, especially for those who prefer something closer to the beach. It’s also an excellent destination for lovers of marine life. Travelers can reach this coastal resort via flights from Cape Town and Johannesburg thanks to Plettenberg Bay Airport
The waters of Plettenberg Bay team with activities and the marine life that attracts so many. Ocean Safaris
provides an incredible experience with whale and dolphin watching opportunities. Dolphin Adventures also provides a similar experience in encountering the wonders of the ocean. Surfing in the bay, snorkeling, and diving are other activities that allow travelers to truly take in the surroundings. Away from the water, there is still fun to be had. Birds of Eden is the largest enclosed aviary in the world, and Goose Valley Golf Estate
provides a picturesque setting for a tee-off.
