“Amakaya” means “home” and we strive to make Amakaya Backpackers hostel & self-catering your “home away from home”
We are a short 300 metre walk from Main Street, Plettenberg Bay. Shops, restaurants, pubs and outdoor market will keep you busy and 500m further down the road is the popular Central Beach. Our upstairs bar and open air veranda offers magnificent views of the Tsitsikamma mountain range, the lagoon and the bay. This is a great place to relax after a busy day’s activities or for the early risers to watch the sunrise. At night you can swop stories of your adventures while sitting around the bonfire or just relax in one of our hammocks. To keep yourself busy, visit our Adventure Centre where we will help arrange things to do, including tours to get you out and about in the Garden Route area. We will also arrange transport to these activities if you do not have your own. Car hire/rental is also available on our website.
