Great walking at low tide. The slant on the beach is quite noticeable at low tide which makes the walking not quite as good. Very lovely walking and looking out at the ocean, just soaking in the beauty of the coastline.

Plettenberg Bay's main beach is ideal for families. Relatively safe waters, great for the little ones to experience beach life, and fun to boogy board around in.

Great town with great friendly people. Lots to do, plenty of beaches to visit and restaurants to go to. Around Plett there are a lot of activities to keep you busy for a long time. For the whole family.

We didn’t do the whale Tour because it was not the season. It is still an enjoyable little village. Nice restaurants, beautiful view and white beaches.

A very relaxed beach experience. Very beautiful landscape and environment. Water not on the chilli side but quick to adjust to. Beach not packed. A couple of decent and fun restaurants and pubs by the beach for your enjoyment. The entire family had a blast!
