Periwinkle Lodge, Plettenberg Bay - Holidays in South Africa

Periwinkle Lodge occupies a stunning seafront location in Plettenberg Bay with views of the popular Robberg Beach and the Tsitsikamma mountain range. Enjoy breakfast on the deck whilst watching dolphins in the bay, then relax on the unspoilt beaches or explore the many attractions of the Garden Route. Periwinkle is close to a number of top golf courses making it ideal for South Africa golf holidays on the Garden Route.

The guest rooms are individually decorated in bright, airy colours which reflect the surrounding vistas. Six of the seven rooms have balconies where guests can enjoy the panoramic view from the Robberg Beach Peninsula to the right and the Tsitsikamma Mountains to the left. Most rooms are twin bedded but can be made up into kingsize beds on request. All rooms are en-suite and have TV’s, telephones, tea/coffee facilities and Bar fridges.

Periwinkle is situated on Beachyhead Drive, overlooking the Robberg Peninsula, the Tsitsikamma Mountains and with direct walking access onto Robberg Beach. The guest house is perfectly situated for leisurely walks or lazy days spent on the beach or as a perfect stop over point to explore the scenic Garden Route. Knysna is just 25Km away.

For golfing enthusiasts, on South Africa golf holidays, Periwinkle Lodge is conveniently located to play the nearby Plettenberg Bay course as well as Goose Valley. The courses at Knysna, such as Pezula and Simola are about 30 minutes drive.

Whale & Dolphin Discovery Cruises that depart from the quayside in the town centre are a highlight, or you can watch from your balcony or over breakfast.  Kranshoek, Nature's Valley & Tsitsikamma National Park are all in close proximity for keen hikers, or if you are feeling really adventurous, how about zip lining or even bungee-jumping?!

Travelling in the other direction to Knysna - Oyster tasting; elephant viewing at the local Sanctuary; cruises to the Heads & Featherbed Nature Reserve all make for interesting day trips. 

The unique and most exciting feature of this area is the abundance in marine mammals in the bay which is flanked by two marine nature reserves and therefore rich in food for the resident whales and dolphins. During July to September every year, Southern Right Whales migrate to this part of the Indian Ocean to calve. There are organised boat trips all year round to see Brydes whales and dolphins. Large schools of dolphin surfing the breakers or leaping clear of the sea, are a regular sight throughout the year.

In our opinion: This is one of the best B&B's in the area, and as a result is always booked well in advance.
