Get a mind-body workout at the Plett Puzzle Park found just outside Plettenberg Bay. Take an easy hike through a forest dense with birds and pause every few feet to solve a puzzle or brain teaser at the wooden stations along the trail (bonus: get seven right and you win a free drink at the café). Then, try to escape from a convoluted two-tier 3-D maze that’s a challenge for kids and adults alike. On the way back to Pezula, cool off with a swim at Keurboom Beach on the outskirts of Plett, a wide stretch of sand that’s among the prettiest on the Garden Route. Sunsets here are particularly spectacular, and best viewed over dinner steps from the surf at local favorite Ristorante Enrico. Chef Enrico Iacopini sails off on his boat each morning to source much of the fresh kabeljou, red snapper, and other seafood on the Italian-leaning menu.
Plett Puzzle Park is just off the N2 just outside Plettenberg Bay a 45-minute drive from the hotel. Ristorante Enrico is 10 minutes away in nearby Keurboomstrand.
