Three Coastal Hotspots in Sunny South Africa
We keen to share some more exciting spots for you to visit on your trip to South Africa. These are bound to get you excited to pack your bag and get on that aeroplane.
The most exciting part is that all of these spots are accessible from the friendly city of Port Elizabeth, as you head along the coast towards Cape Town! (Explore our one-way tours here.)
Situated along the scenic Garden Route, Plettenberg Bay is a small but classy coastal town between Tsitsikamma in the Eastern Cape and Knysna in the Western Cape. Plett is famously known for its kilometres of unspoiled beaches and a range of leisure activities for every kind of traveller, which include charter boat cruises, hiking, canoeing and abseiling. Other great activities include Monkeyland Primate Sanctuary – the world’s only multi-species, free-roaming primate sanctuary, located a few minutes out of town; as well as Birds of Eden, the world's largest free-flight aviary; and Robberg Nature Reserve. For those with more of a daring soul, a short trip along the N2 towards Port Elizabeth will get you to Bloukrans Bridge, the highest bungy bridge in the world! (Make it easy on yourself with our Garden Route Adventure Tour.)
Sedgefield is a coastal town situated on the Garden Route, and easily accessible via the N2 national road, between the towns of George and Knysna. Sedgefield is home to a collection of amazing beaches – such as Swartvlei, Myoli, Cola and Platbank – and a tranquil lagoon. Try your hand at yachting, windsurfing, boardsailing, canoeing, waterskiing, paragliding and wakeboarding, or go birdwatching or horseback riding. Here you’ll also find the famous Wild Oats Farmers Market on Saturdays and the Scarab Village craft market, which is open daily. With so much to do, you’d better start planning! (Or you can leave it to us with an easy daytrip.)
