Keurboomstrand is located near the beach town of Plettenberg Bay on South Africa’s Western Cape. It is a wide pristine stretch of golden sand along the warm blue waters of the Indian Ocean, and the views of the mountains beyond, thick with trees, are spectacular. This beach gets its name from the native Keurboom Tree, which blooms with pinkish mauve flowers in August and September and then in December.
Towards the end of the beach the Keurbooms and Bitou Rivers joint together creating a lagoon with its own island inside. This is a great spot for fishing, boating, canoeing, and skiing.
When you walk on the beach, you can look across to the Robberg Peninsula and nature preserve which marks the end of Plettenberg Bay and this vast crescent of sand. This is a great spot to visit and the views back across the bay from the hills of the park are really impressive. The whole area surrounding Keurboomstrand is a beautiful wilderness and the next beach along is the aptly named Nature’s Valley.
Keurboomstrand is on the Garden Route, and you should take a drive to explore the majestic scenery of this area. This is a fantastic location to explore and enjoy beauty of the Western Cape.
