This Plett backpackers is right up at the top of the Plettenberg Bay hill, with a great view.

Amakaya is very close to the Plett action
As popular as ever, Amakaya means “home”, so move in and make yourself at home!
A short 300m stroll gets you to Main Street, the hub of Pletts’ shops, restaurants and nightlife. But if “life’s a beach” for you, wind your way down to the ever popular Central Beach.
Fully equipped for self-catering, Amakaya also has 2 braai areas, a communal lounge, outside fire-pit and hammocks. The upstairs bar and verandah is the ideal place to relax with its mountain, lagoon and sea views. That said, Plett’s not made for sitting around, as Amakaya well knows - so let them help you plan some memorable adventures.
