Plettenberg Bay holds many wonderful childhood memories for me. Our grandparents retired there, first in a white house within walking distance of the lagoon, then on a fabulous small-holding outside Plett – complete with indigenous forest, sparkling stream and an endless supply of real Christmas trees – and then to a little cottage looking towards the mountains in Formosa Retirement Village.
This, of course (despite my being spring-chicken young) was when Plett was still a sleepy little coastal village, pre-‘Millionaire’s Row’ and waaay-pre-Plett Rage. Early morning walks along Lookout Beach to the river mouth or the other way toward Robberg, proffered up pansy shells and foot-tickling ...more

#PlettChillOut a Success
The annual Plett ChillOut by one of Kwano’s rising stars, Sivuyile “Sivu” Nkomo and sponsored by Plett Tourism, was as usual a major success.
With 4000 - 5000 people attending this popular event according to Sivu, it was packed both inside and out, but with a twist this year- it was held opposite Skhulu’z Lounge as opposed to the Kwano Stadium.
An interesting fact about this year’s Plett ChillOut was that there were no big headline names to pull the crowds, just local DJ’s and artists. Sivu also says he did his marketing entirely online, mostly on Facebook, with no printed posters and the like.
This is proof enough ...more

One of the most heart-warming, and important, aspects of Plett hosting the Student Rage festival is the support provided from the local business community to make sure that our young visitors get the most out of the experience. ‘Friends of the Festival’ has been running for a few years now, and with each passing year, the volume of restaurants, retailers and outlets joining the scheme keeps growing. Over the course of the next few blogs we’ll be capturing the enthusiasm and gusto of those companies involved and what it means to be so closely and officially connected to Plett Rage 2018 as a ‘Friend of the Festival’.
‘Pro Dive is happy to be getting involved in the Plett Rage as a ...more
