George - George is an amazing town to visit and there is lots to do and see. Plenty of entertainment on weekends like markets and, of course, beautiful beaches and the mountains with the Klein Karoo on the other side. I would highly recommend this town for any tourist or visitor. It is also a beautiful town and very scenic.
A nice village - Amazing surroundings.
Disappointing - Every time we visit Mossel Bay, we hope things will have improved, but we are always disappointed. It's too big to have that small-town charm anymore, but doesn't have the proper infrastructure of a larger town.
It's probably fine if all you're interested in is the beach (which is beautiful), but don't expect fine dining or tourist attractions.
- Absolute heaven on Earth, too beautiful and peaceful.
Diaz Strand - Dit is een van die mooiste en skoonste strande wat daar is. Dit is lekker om net te stap
Diaz Strand - Die mooiste en skoonste strande wat daar is.
A Look At Jongensfontein - I agree with the previous review. It is a delightful little town, on the sea (or ocean) in a pretty part of our country.

Peaceful - Witsand is the perfect place to relax and unwind.
Beautiful - My new favorite place.

Calm beautiful place - Stunning views, wildlife (birds) , lovely restaurants.
Michelle - Port Elizabeth - Wish I could live there.
Whales - At the right time and in the right spot, whale watching in Witsand provides a wonderful full-day activity.
Friendly town - A warm and friendly town with great restaurants. It's a scenic town that's easy to navigate.
Paradise found - Stunning sunsets and sunrises, quiet and so beautiful. Easy access from Island to all other fun adventurous activities in Knysna and Garden Route!
Stormsriver Village - Home away from home, nice and peaceful everyone is friendly.
Nice place on the garden route - Plettenberg Bay has a really nice beach. Highly recommended to relax one day. If you want to see something else, visit Monkey Land. It is quite interesting and the guides are keen to answer your every question. If you like pizza, visit "The Table" for dinner. Fastest and best pizza in town. Try Marco's ice cream as a dessert!
1 night stay at Riversdale - Small community, respectful people. People greet you with a smile. I felt so safe and the place appeared peaceful. The service at the police station was quick and professional. The hospital staff was friendly and helpful. We will visit the place again.
Top class! - Challenging but immaculately maintained golf course! What fantastic views!
Management need management - Accommodation is stunning, but the course, which is beautiful, albeit too short, is constantly getting four balls upset. Rude, short and care-less attitudes at the actual golf club make our stays there less worthwhile.
Estate great; the golf course, not so - Estate is homely and secure. Great views, and well run. The golf course, however, is becoming awful, been a victim of course harassment there at my last stay, made worse by management who try and blame the client as opposed to clear-cut etiquette. Many other courses close by, however, run very differently though which is a pleasure.
Unprofessional Club Etiquette - Played several games there this week as a resident. Besides non-working cart GPS, and shoddy clubhouse service once or twice, I had a 'marshal' argue about a single set of clubs between two players on the 7th, fair enough, fixed it on the 9th. More bullying than anything else according to other players. But intentionally interrupting live play and holding back our game on a dead quiet day is not etiquette. Couldn't have been handled worse, and an uninterested Hutchinson and co. seem incapable of seeing their clients point of view! Disgraceful experience.
Holiday in Mosselbay - City with a town feeling. Friendly people. We had the best meal at Gipsy Café close to the harbor with excellent service! We would have liked to show our kids how the ships come into the harbor but unfortunately were not allowed inside.
- A lovely safe and clean coastal town. Lots of lovely accommodations. Great lagoon and beaches, interesting artey shops. Who needs Knysna?
- Nice central spot for exploring.
Thesen island as Romance Mania, supplied by Nature. - Gorgeous, fresh. Beautiful to wake up to. Very romantic and adventurous if you're mischievous enough.
Plett - Very nice and beautiful view and not too far from Cape Town, I love the beach and everything is very close to each other
Stilbaai - We had the most wonderful time during the easter weekend. Love the town and especially the well stocked Spar and other lovely shops and all the friendly people.
Heaven - Nature's Valley is possibly the most beautiful part of the Garden Route. Unspoilt yet offering a few guesthouses/self-catering places, it's ideal for a few days of relaxing and fresh air. Long walks on the beach or in the forest, hiking trails to suit all ages and fitness levels, photographic heaven, views to die for, a friendly pub/restaurant and little shop for all emergency supplies - if you haven't yet spent a few days there you're missing out on something special.
Sedgefield - Beautiful coastal town with a lagoon and lovely beaches.
Can really come to relax in this peaceful village!
Knysna is only 25 km away!
Beautiful - I have been on lots of seaside holidays, but Dana Bay is in a different class. I am considering buying property in Dana Bay. This is a peace of heaven.
Home from home - Heatherlands is an older upper middle class residential suburb in close proximity to the golf course. Forest reserve and botanic gardens with convenience shopping and some other amenities within walking distance. It has excellent mountain views.
Heatherlands, George - Decent suburb and close proximity to forest area and main roads
Amazing - Amazing
Nirvana - My favourite part of the world. Beaches, mountains, rivers and forests, not to mention all the attractions
Brenton on Sea - Peaceful. Scenic, Breathtakingly Views
Sedgefield - A really quiet and picturesque village along the Garden Route. The lagoon and beaches are very attractive and there are some good restaurants for relaxing.

Beautiful - Very beautiful and there is lots to do.
A real relaxed town - Enjoyed every moment. Had some of the best Fish and Seafood at the VIking Restaurant.
A delightful town - Witsand is a small, peaceful and friendly town. The attraction is most certainly the lagoon, where waterspouts of all kinds occur, from speed boating, to fishing to skiing and canoeing. It's a great place to be if you are into your water sports. But it also is quiet, and very very safe. Long walks on the beach and around the town are also in order.
Heaven on earth... - Wilderness is a paradise! The people are so chilled, and the town is so peaceful and beautiful. A must for anyone looking to get away from it all and enjoy all the Garden Route has to offer.

Camphers Drift - A great place to visit. It's only a few km from some of South Africa's great holiday destinations such as Knysna, Wilderness, Mossel Bay and Tsitsikama.
Close enough to Wilderness - I was not sure if Hoekwil was going to be close enough to Wilderness and was a little hesitant to stay there. But as the accommodation prices were better than in Wilderness I decided to stay there. PERFECT if you want to go to Wilderness but don't pay the expensive beach cottage prices! It has an amazing feeling and a view that will blow you away! A definite YES!
Stormsriver Village - We love this unexpected gem!
Little magic Eden - Why didn't I ever stop here? I have driven past the village so many times and have just never stop there. The perfect place to stop for lunch or a free forest and picnic. STOP HERE on transit or better spend a night and do any of the many adventure activities...
First and lasting impression - Stilbaai was everything people raves about, good for swimming, walking, simply looking over the ocean from your deck.
Ample shopping convenience, and dining places. A destination that I will love to return to.
Lovely - Lovely place!
Quaint - We loved the food at Marilyn's. I know the brilliant 60s icon decor is really special but we thoroughly enjoyed the food. Tasty, good quality food! Lack of any ATM's was a bit disappointing but the little bottle store was ready to help.
Lovely - Lovely for children
Mossel Bay is so clean! - Before we decided to have a holiday in Mossel Bay, a friend commented that it was 'so clean'. Absolutely true. Even though the Buffalo Rally was on while we were there, everything was well controlled. And the day after some 3000 bikers had left, the campsite was spotless again. The city is so well-kept, it is a real example for us in Gauteng where litter is the order of the day. Santos Beach doesn't have waves so is great for 'exercise swimming'; however, Dias Beach, just up the road does have great waves. All in all a great holiday!
Best kept secret - Beautiful scenery, range of good accommodation, excellent restaurants, wonderful beaches, interesting shops. Also an ideal base from which to explore the klein karoo and numerous mountain passes.
