Plettenburg Bay is a very popular holiday resort about 32km (half hour drive) from Knysna. Take a very pleasant day trip to Plett stopping off to take a relaxing forest walk through the Garden of Eden (Map C4). The walk is also suitable for people in wheelchairs. A few kilometres further on is the turnoff to Harkerville and Kranshoek (Map D4), which has one of the most spectacular views of the rugged coastline. Plett, as it is affectionately called, has sparkling white beaches and some of the best swimming and surfing in the Garden Route There are two lagoons with lots of hermit crabs and inquisitive seagulls to keep children interested for hours. The lovely long walks along the edge of the azure sea are often rewarded with whale and dolphin sightings. Plett has lots of places to eat and interesting shops, a daytrip to this popular resort is a must.
