However, the surrounding mountain ranges restricted movement in and out of the area until Knysna was established. This led to the founding of Plettenberg Bay, which has become a world-class tourist destination with hotels such as The Plettenberg and the Beacon Island Lifestyle Resort catering for local and international visitors alike.
