Plettenberg Bay
Garden Route

Plettenberg Bay was named after Governor Joachim von Plettenberg, who incorporated the bay under the administrative sovereignty of the Dutch-East India Trading Company in 1778. The Company used the place primarily as a shipping port for timber. Later on there was a whaling station built here, which was active until 1920.

Keurboom Strand, Plettenberg BayOn the site of the former whaling station stands an exclusive hotel and timeshare complex today. The "Beacon Island" has had a great impact on Plettenberg Bay, leading it into prominence as an exclusive seaside resort. Today, there is, of course, a great number of excellent hotels and lodges, B&B`s and guest houses, apartments and caravan parks.
