It's easy to understand why the rich and famous have made Plettenberg Bay their holiday playground. In short, no other area in Southern Africa offers as great a diversity of naturally beautiful environments and as wide a variety of fun-filled recreational opportunities within such close proximity to each other as does Plettenberg Bay.
Soaring cliffs and pounding surf combine with magnificent beaches, deep gorges, tranquil rivers, lagoons and estuaries to create one of the most breathtakingly beautiful coastal landscapes in the world.
As a backdrop to all of this visual magnificence are the most romantic reaches of South Africa's great coastal forests stretching up towards the fynbos clad mountains and peaks of the rugged Outeniqua and Tsitsikamma ranges.
The great aesthetic appeal of Plettenberg Bay and its surrounds was recognized a long time ago. Little wonder then that the early Portuguese sailors first christened it Bahia Formosa ...the Beautiful Bay.
The secret appeal of Plettenberg Bay is that during the peak period you can choose to be part of the hustle and bustle of the holiday rush in and around Central Beach or, within minutes, escape to the solitude of magical fern filled forests, deep shadowy gorges and isolated beaches. It is here, within a few minutes of all that Plettenberg Bay has to offer that you will find the Formosa Bay Villas.
