Amongst the beautiful beach towns situated along the Garden Route lies Plettenberg Bay: a destination set apart by pristine beaches, a diverse selection of real estate options and a picturesque backdrop of the Outeniqua and Tsitsikamma mountains. The Khoi are the earliest known residents of Plettenberg Bay and have enjoyed the area’s perfect climate for many centuries. However, the surrounding mountain ranges restricted movement in and out of the area until Knysna was established. This led to the founding of Plettenberg Bay, which has become a world-class tourist destination with hotels such as The Plettenberg and the Beacon Island Lifestyle Resort catering for local and international visitors alike.

Located just an hour from George and two hours from Port Elizabeth, Plettenberg Bay is easily accessible and is one of South Africa’s most popular holiday destinations. Real estate for sale in Plettenberg Bay is a popular choice due to its spectacular natural surroundings and modern apartments to rent.
