On this beach you can choose between the crashing breakers of the open sea or the calmer option of the lagoon; gorgeous. An added bonus is the lifesaving and shark watch safety crew on duty on the main beach.

We took a long walk along Plettenberg beach. Wonderful waves crashing on the beach and soft sands. Not much more to add really. Not commercial, just a long unspoilt beach.

Beautiful beaches here but weather very unpredictable - it often rains. When it’s sunny it’s amazing!
