Planning a South African road trip down the Garden Route? If you are, you may pass Plettenberg Bay — a town steeped in South African history.
Plettenberg Bay is blessed with pristine beaches, making it a popular destination for beach-goers. In fact, during the months of December and January, the town’s population of 44,000 swells nearly four times.
Grab a couple of friends, hire a car in South Africa, and explore what this Garden Route gem has to offer. Here are 10 reasons why you should visit Plettenberg Bay.

Please note that car hire Plettenberg bay is an option but most people would fly into George and pick up a vehicle there to travel the Garden Route.











South Africa is extremely vast and the Garden route is no exception. George and Knysna are about 62km apart so car hire is always your best bet. No point in getting stuck without transport.
