Find peace and tranquility in Plettenberg Bay’s Robberg Marine Protected Area.

Brits on flights to South Africa looking for somewhere peaceful and tranquil to visit will find everything they are looking for in Plettenberg Bay’s Robberg Marine Protected Area.

Robberg is a peninsula that pokes out of South Africa’s Plettenberg Bay, a popular holiday destination for travellers from all over the world.

It is known for offering a serene alternative to the bay’s holiday homes and entertainment, with beaches, rocky cliffs and coastal fynbos to enjoy in a relaxing manner.

The peninsula literally gets its name from its native seals – rob is Afrikaans for seals – which, after a period of ruthless hunting, have returned to healthy numbers and can easily be spotted by wildlife enthusiasts.

Robberg is a perfect place to take an adventurous hike or a very wet ride in a kayak.

The latter gives you a unique opportunity to get close to the amazing biodiversity conserved here.

Although commercial fishing is banned, keen fishers can get a special permit from CapeNature, which is responsible for preserving the area, to drop a line into the rich waters.
