    Plett (as it's known) offers a number of attractions to visitors doing SA's Garden Route: a string of lovely beaches, good seafood, and a decent bar scene. It's a little bit built-up for my tastes, but the stunning Robberg Peninsula at the bay's western edge is fantastic, and one of the best examples of South Africa's unspoiled natural beauty.

    My husband and I spent 15 days between Christmas and New Years and we spent 3 lovely days in Plett. It's a great beach town where a lot of South Africans spend their holidays. Tons of families but great places to eat and have a good time.

    My favorite town in South Africa. Great for getting away though it's hardly off the beaten path. Great place to base yourself to explore the area.
