Plettenberg Bay is the jewel of the Garden Route and is tranquil and hospitable. The bay’s beaches are flanked on one side by the Outeniqua and Tsitsikamma mountain ranges and by the Robberg Peninsula on the other side. The Robberg Peninsula is a Nature Reserve and Marine protected area. There is a hiking trail around the Peninsula which is quite challenging and can take over four hours to complete! There is a colony of Cape Fir Seals on the Plettenberg Bay side of the Peninsula which is a popular sight to see and some people swim with the seals whilst supervised by local divers. The Peninsula attracts a number of sharks because of the seal colony including the Great White Shark. An Elephant Seal visits from time to time looking for vulnerable pups to feed on.
