Enjoying The Plett Outdoors
Plettenberg Bay is a gorgeous coastal town along the world-famous Garden Route. It is a tourist hotspot, loved for its central location and its stunning expanse of beautiful beaches. Because of the white sand and azure seas, outdoor enthusiasts will likely enjoy surfing, swimming and snorkelling during their time in Plett. But, there’s plenty more to do for visitors and locals, young and old, who enjoy being in the South African outdoors.

For an unforgettable experience for families, couples, tourists or researchers, Birds of Eden is the perfect place to spend the day. This is the world’s largest single dome free-flight aviary and boasts more than 220 species of birds. In total, about 3 000 birds have Birds of Eden as their idyllic home. This stunning aviary is just 16 kilometres from Plett and includes indigenous forest, a walk-behind waterfall and an amphitheatre that seats up to 200 people. Some of the birds have been abandoned or injured and are not able to live safely in the wild. Therefore, they are being cared for within the larger, safer domain of Birds of Eden.
Nature-lovers simply have to spend time at the beautiful, untouched Robberg Nature Reserve, where views of the Indian Ocean from a bushveld brimming with fynbos leave visitors in awe of the South African scenery.
