As one of South Africa's most popular beach destinations, the resort town of Plettenberg Bay comes to life in December and January, when the holiday homes fill up with domestic tourists and foreigner visitors.

Change things up with these side-trips from Plettenberg Bay: Knysna (Peggy's African Art and Tours, Garden Route National Park, &more) and Tsitsikamma National Park (Suspension Bridge & Waterfall Trail). Next up on the itinerary: tour the pleasant surroundings at Radical Raptors and play a few rounds at Goose Valley Golf Club.
