Plettenberg Bay’s honey-hued beaches and lapis lazuli waters have been luring South Africa’s weekending moguls and millionaires for years. At Christmas time, high flying folk land by helicopter, pristine polo fields are packed with players and party season begins to heat up. All year long you can expect sensational saltwater thrills, languid days at the lagoon and emerald forests leading to rousing natural trails and a soundtrack of chattering Inca Jays.
Beyond the glamour of the architecturally designed holiday homes, Plett, as the locals call it, is wide open for adventure. Days are filled with windsurfing, paddle boarding and diving or spent in the lazy hazy way on fine-as-flour sands where the sun parasols are as bright as the bikinis. First light summons surfers to the ocean, joggers to the shoreline and birds dancing across the sky. Foodie favourite, Market on the Main, a lively strip of wooden shacks, serves up dishes that are the soul of Plett; biltong, babotie and meats grilled on the braai. And rustic luxe restaurants, with their elevated ocean decks, are the perfect spot to catch dolphins playing in the waves or watch a sunset streaked with flames dipping beneath the skyline.
