      Plettenberg Bay is the southernmost wine of origin region in the Western Cape with vineyards and a new cellar in the Crags built on the success of the Bramon Wine Estate's additions to the South African wine catalogue. Plettenberg Bay has recently become home to a number of new wine farms. With many more on the horizon, it seems like Plett will soon be a "sparkling" wine destination for wine fundi's and connoisseurs.

      Get on your bike to experience the stunning scenic single track and jeep track trails through indigenous forest, plantations, fragrant fynbos and dramatic cliff tops overlooking the ocean. The four colour-coded Harkerville routes offer a range of routes to suit all levels of riders ranging from an easy family ride to fast-flowing single track through plantations, costal fynbos and indigenous forest.



      Plettenberg Bay Country Club has an 18 hole golf course set in a private nature reserve. The Goose Valley Golf Club is situated in pristine surroundings, only 4km from Plettenberg Bay, bordering on the Keurbooms Lagoon
