We are a 300m walk to the shops, restaurants and bars of Plettenberg Bay’s Main Street and 800m from the popular Central Beach (beware of the steep uphill walk back that will certainly build up an appetite!).

Half day and full day tours are also available and can be planned to suite your requirements. Our Adventure Centre will tell you what is available and help you plan your personalised tour.
