The Perfect Holiday in Plettenberg Bay | Beacon Island Hotel
The Beacon Island Hotel in Plettenberg Bay is truly a world-famous landmark designed for pure relaxation and is the perfect holiday destination. It embraces one of the most beautiful sweeps of coastal scenery in South Africa. With the breathtaking backdrop of the Outeniqua and Tsitsikama mountain ranges, it is protected on one side by the Robberg Nature Reserve, which juts into the sea. This area is also awash with rivers and lagoons, indigenous forests and bounded by long sandy beaches stretching east and west. Built on a rocky peninsula on the edge of the warm Indian Ocean, Beacon Island’s setting remains unsurpassed.
Beacon Island Accommodation
The exquisitely decorated rooms range from luxury suites to one bedroom units and offer fairytale views of marine and mountain splendour, along with every modern comfort. Each room is en-suite with radio, TV and video channel, and a mini fridge. The hotel offers room, valet and babysitting services, laundry and dry-cleaning, a hair salon and a boutique.
Beacon Island Hotel Facilities
The resort caters to every taste and, apart from warm, safe swimming in the sea, there are two swimming pools – one outdoor and one heated indoor – a separate sauna for ladies and gents, floodlit tennis courts, water-skiing, scuba diving, volleyball, table tennis and squash. For the health conscious, there is a fully equipped gymnasium, with a daily aerobics programme. Take a hiking trail in the beautiful Knysna and Tsitsikama Forests or a sundowner cruise to the Knysna Heads. There’s also a full daily entertainment programme and a live band offering dancing in the sea lounge nightly.
