"Wake up to the waves breaking against the shore of the swimming beach at Backpackers Beach House Lodge, ideally situated along Hobie beach in Plettenberg Bay."


Backpackers Beach House Lodge is literally seven steps from the beach and next door to the founder of Plettenberg bays Governor Von Plettenbergs national wood store ruins built in 1778. Gone are the parking problems and loading your car with equipment when going to the beach. Simply grab your towel and take a stroll down to the sand and sea.  Hobie beach is next to Plettenberg Bay’s main beach in front of Beacon Isle. Guests enjoying the accommodation at our Backpackers Beach House Lodge in Plettenberg Bay, can go yachting, swimming or participate in various water sports in the warm waters as well as enjoy a discount at selected action adventures in and around Plettenberg Bay

The Establishment of Backpackers Beach house offers the following accommodation ( all rooms are fully serviced)- two double rooms, an eight-sleeper en-suite dormitory and one self-catering loft apartment. The Backpackers Beach House has a fully equipped kitchen with laundry facilities, a comfortable and spacious lounge that looks onto the garden, and a swimming pool. Warm days can be spent relaxing on the deck by the pool while enjoying the stunning view.  Enjoy the shade of the trees after an action filled day spent on an ocean safari, jet skiing or after an adventurous day trip to Storms River to bungee jump.

Plettenberg Bay is known as the jewel of the Garden Route, with its tranquil and rather glamorous miles of unspoilt golden beaches, dramatic rocky peninsula, intriguing lagoons, towering indigenous forests and unpolluted rivers. It is ideal for holidaymakers interested in exploring, observing or just lazing.
