Visitors to Plett are continuously surprised & delighted by the natural splendour that surrounds us and one of Plett’s crown jewels would have to be the marine environment. The bay of Plettenberg Bay is sheltered by the iconic Robberg Peninsula, making it the ideal place to play for watersports enthusiasts and nature lovers.
Plett was recently recognised as one of only 5 International Hope Spots in Africa and with good reason! The aim of the Plett Hope Spot is to support the proposed linkage of the Tstisikamma Marine Protected Area with the Robberg Marine Protected Area – a massive expanse of coast and will be supported by established non-profit organisations through science, tourism, education and sustainable development.
The Hope Spots are awarded by Mission Blue, a well established and highly recognised international initiative and the Plett Hope Spot was launched this past December by pioneering marine biologist and Glamour magzine’s “Women of the Year”, Dr Sylvia Earle.
We’re excited to see where the Hope Spot project is headed for Plett, but in the meantime here are some excellent ways to enjoy the Plett Hope Spot:
- Hiking Robberg Peninsula
- Swim with Cape Fur Seals
- Ocean Kayaking in Plett
- Scuba Diving & Snorkelling
