Plettenberg Bay's beach, polo and party-going pleasures. The area is an adventure-seeker's paradise, from seasoned adrenaline junkie to gentle nature-lover, there is something for everyone. One can swing through the trees of the Tsitikama Forest, abseil down the cliffs of The Heads, scuba-dive the wreck of the Paquita or spot the mysterious seahorse, canoe up the Knysna river, sail a catamaran across the Lagoon and through The Heads to watch Whales and Dolphins, horse-ride around nearby lakes and beaches, visit the Garden Route Game Reserve for a safari or play a round or two of golf at a choice of nearby world-class golf courses.
"Beauty and mystery" is what comes to mind when describing Knysna. The town nestles between the impressive Outeniqua Mountains and the Indian Ocean, with the world-renowned forests encircling it like a protective mantle. The oyster-rich estuary is protected from the sea by the sandstone sentinels know as "The Heads". The town is also famous for its oysters - the festival in July is well worth a visit.
The climate is moderate with summer daytime temperatures averaging 26 degrees and 20 degrees in winter. The area has a reputation for having "four seasons in one day".
