PLETTENBERG BAY NEWS - Plettenberg Bay is in the running for the coveted title of Africa's leading beach destination for an 11th consecutive year and needs the public's vote to secure the top spot once more.
This should come as no surprise, however, as the town has been dominating the annual Blue Flag awards over the past few years.
In the most recent awards, six of the town's beaches received the status.
Despite being a small holiday destination, Plett finished just behind Cape Town – which secured 10 sites – in the Blue Flag race in the Western Cape. Nationally, Plett had the third-highest number of beaches with this prestigious title.
Plett's Blue Flag beaches include Robberg 5 (for the 10th consecutive time); Keurbooms Strand (eighth time); Natures' Valley (seventh); Lookout Beach (fifth); The Dunes (third); and The Singing Kettle Beach (second).
