Ocean Watch guest house is situated in Plettenberg Bay on the Garden Route. Originally christened "Bahia Formosa" (beautiful bay) by early Portuguese explorers, Plettenberg Bay remains the jewel of the Garden Route. The great forests lying at the feet of the fabled Outeniqua and Tsitsikamma mountains are the gateway to the incredible indigenous African wealth of Plettenberg Bay.
The entire area teems with birdlife. Nearly 300 species are to be found in the great variety of habitats ranging from fynbos to forest to wetlands. No less than ten important nature reserves embrace the varied ecosystems of the area as well as unique marine reserves, home to soft coral reefs, dolphins, seals and a host of other marine life. The bay itself is Nursery to the endangered Southern Right Whale which come here to calve in the winter and spring (July to November).
