A holiday means different things to everyone. Some people plan their vacations to be jam-packed with activities and experiences, hardly stopping to eat or sleep. While others plan to slow things down, lingering over long lunches, reading a book on the beach or just breathing in our fresh coastal air. Plettenberg Bay is located on the action-packed Garden Route, which offers everything from scuba diving to bungy jumping, and all sorts in-between. However, if you’re looking for a different type of Plett holiday, then we’ve gathered some of the most wonderfully lazy things to do:


Ocean Sailing Charters offers luxury cruises on their 44ft sailing catamaran. The sheltered bay is perfect for a calm, serene oceanic experience. Sip sparkling wine, suntan and watch the dolphins and seals slicing through the water. There are few things more relaxing than the scent of the ocean breeze and the snap of the sail to help you unwind.

Take all of the stress out of navigating the Plett Winelands by taking a tour with Plett Wine Tours. Plettenberg Bay is home to one of South Africa’s newest Wine of Origin regions and boasts quite the reputation for its MCC bubbly. Sip your way through the wine farms, sampling delicious bubbly and crisp whites, snacking on tapas and soaking up the sun – this is the way to explore a wine region.


The Tsitsikamma National Park includes the most beautiful indigenous forest. If you’re not up for the adrenalin of ziplining through the treetops, or the effort of hiking or biking through the forest, then a Segway tour should be right up your alley. The perfect activity for the whole family, Segway is an easy, fun, and interesting way to explore the beauty of the region.

Holidays and sundowners go hand in hand. Plettenberg Bay has restaurants with magnificent ocean, river and lagoon views; they’re the perfect places to sip a fruity cocktail with friends, share an al fresco meal and watch the light changing on the water.

Need to relax and have a digital detox? There really isn’t a better place, in our minds, than time spent on the beach. Grab a beach umbrella, blanket and that book you’ve been meaning to read, head down to one of Plettenberg Bay’s beautiful beaches and you’re all set.

PLEASE NOTE: If you’re going to the beach alone, choose a beach where there are other people and don’t swim at beaches where there are no lifeguards present.
