Summer is here in Plett! Officially. And there is no better place to be in Plettenberg Bay than at the beach! Plett is most fortunate to have not one or two but three Blue Flag Beaches to offer visitors and tourists. The beaches in Plett that have been awarded international Blue Flag status are:
– Robberg 5
– Nature’s Valley Beach
A beach is given Blue Flag status for excelling in cleanliness, safety, provision of amenities and environmental information and management. This prestigious status is a huge coup for Plettenberg Bay and a massive plus for beach-lovers. This internationally recognised accreditation assures tourists that the beaches that they choose to visit adhere to international safety and other tourist standards.
Robberg 5 is an iconic Plett beach, with kilometers of sand stretching towards the famous Robberg Peninsula and is a popular beach as, during whale season, whales will often be spotted just behind the breakers. Keurbooms Beach is another great choice of beach with interesting rock formations including the “Arch Rock”. Nature’s Valley is the most remote of the 3 Blue Flag beaches of Plettenberg Bay and, although the ocean can be a bit more treacherous as it is outside the shelter of the bay, there are rock pools, dramatic cliffs and spectacular hikes to be enjoyed around Nature’s Valley.
The best news yet is that the 3 Blue Flag beaches are not the only beaches around Plettenberg Bay: Cental Beach is the place where all the action happens from Plett Rage Parties, Concerts, Beach Volleyball and more, Wedge Beach is one of the best bodyboarding waves in South Africa, The Island on Robberg Peninsula is pure secluded bliss and Lookout Beach is much beloved and great for looking for pansy shells.
