The Crags is such a 'happening' place; a destination with a difference. It is bang in the middle of the Garden Route embraced by the popular coastal town of Plettenberg Bay and the quaint village of Nature’s Valley. 22 activities and 16 accommodation establishments packed into a 30km radius!
Monkeyland, Birds of Eden, Lawnwood Snake Sanctuary, Tenikwa Wildlife Awareness Centre, The Elephant Sanctuary, Kurland Polo, Ingwe Forest Adventures, the Big Three (whales, dolphins, seals) at Ocean Blue Adventures and the delightful boat trips up the Keurbooms River at the Plett Angling Club. All the shopping you can do at Langa Lapu, Women on the Move – a local community initiative – Porcupine Raku Pottery and the Mill Mohair & Décor Centre. The Crags even have their own Theatre at The Barnyard and the mind twisting, conundrum posing Puzzle Park!!
You are spoilt for choice with restaurants too: the pioneers in wine growing at Bramon Wine Estate where delicious lunches are served with their award winning bubbly and BEE wines in the vineyards overlooking the Elephant Sanctuary; or tuck into the Peppermill’s scrummy breakfast and lunches at the Mill Centre; and if it’s the sea you desire, well, you can’t get closer than Enrico’s; for a great pub grub you can’t go wrong at Nature’s Valley Restaurant. And don’t forget the Flight Deck at the Birds of Eden and Nature’s Way Farmstall is a must stop for the best cheeses and farm produce (great for picnics and they do lunches too!) So from the hustle and bustle of Plettenberg Bay, to the delights of The Crags, leave yourself time to wander down the R102 to another of the natural wonders of the world – Nature’s Valley.
In the evening, when good food and a good night’s rest beckons, choose from serene five star hotels, four star lodges & country house, excellent B&B’s, and unique and quirky self catering cottages. Something to suit all-comers and all pockets.
