Plettenberg Bay is located on the Southern tip of Africa. It is situated along a stretch of coast called the 'Garden Route', due to the lush temperate and sub-tropical evergreen forests found in the area.
'Plett', as the locals call it, was originally named 'Bahia Formosa' (beautiful bay) by a sixteenth century Portuguese traveler. Guess who didn't go to the library to check up on his name... (Yes, Plett has a nice library too.)
Surprisingly, it is still beautiful. The whales can't be wrong...
