Welcome to The Crags!
Come and Cruise with us!
The Crags is such a “happening” place, a destination with a difference! We are 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. Too many activities to count on one hand and a HOST of accommodation establishments packed into a 30km radius!
Monkeyland, Birds of Eden, Jukani, Lawnwood Snake Sanctuary, The Elephant Sanctuary, Hog Hollow Horse Trails, the Big Three (whales, dolphins, seals) and the delightful canoeing trips up the Bitou & Keurbooms River. All the shopping you can do at Langa Lapu, Siya Phambili – a local community initiative – Zandla Zam and the Mill Mohair & Décor Centre and of course Old Nick Village with their amazing variety of linens, art, crafts, clothing, furniture – you get the idea.
We even have our own Puzzle Park– give your mind a work-out at their mind twisting, conundrum posing place!!
Need a breakaway?
For a bit of adrenalin-pumping excitement against a stunning indigenous backdrop – Africanyon is your answer. Truly!
Now for wining and dining: Well, where to start: The Crags is the hub of the Plett Winelands. It started here, it’s growing here and at the moment has seven operational vineyards – with more ripening!!!
Our pioneers in wine growing at Bramon Wine Estate where mouthwatering tapas lunches are served with their award winning bubbly and wines in the vineyards overlooking the Elephant Sanctuary; special functions & lunches at Newstead Family Vineyard – a very chic place to hang out. On the magnificent estate of Kay & Monty sample their delicious wines and yummy lunches; or for something slightly different try the not only the wines at Lodestone Wines & Olives but their honeybush teas and olive oils! You could even do a vintage carriage trail tasting the delightful wines of The Plettenberg Bay Winelands.
If it’s the sea you desire to admire while eating, you can’t get closer than Enrico’s Restaurant – and the food is super good, not to mention the ambience! And don’t forget Roost down at Old Nick Village with their tasty tempting treats!
A very special shop - Nature’s Way Farm Stall - a must stop for the best cheeses and farm produce (great for picnics), you know that crush in December in Plett, well The Farmstall has EVERYTHING! Oh and they do lunches too. And, if you phone in advance, you can go and watch the cows being milked, a lovely family outing.
So from the hustle and bustle of Plettenberg Bay, to the delights of The Crags, leave yourself time to enjoy the delights of Keurbooms Beach or wander down the R102 to another of the natural wonders of the world – Nature’s Valley and its glorious walks and beaches.
In the evening, when good food and a good night’s rest beckons, choose from out-of-this world five star hotels, fabulous four star lodges & comfy country houses, beautiful B&B’s, quirky self-catering cottages & homes and a backpackers with a difference. Something to suit all-comers and all pockets.
