Keurboom Beach

One of the best surfing locations along the Garden Route;

Keurboomstrand is a resort town near Plettenberg Bay on the Western Cape of South Africa. It takes its name from the indigenous keurboom tree which grows in the region. The Keurbooms River runs nearby. The Matjies River Rock Shelter nearby contains artefacts from the Bushmen dating back to the Neolithic period 11,000 years ago and is a National Monument.[2] The shell middens at the site is one of the largest in the world being 10 metres high, 15 metres wide and 30 metres long, but have been degraded

Portuguese explorers from the Silo Goncalo were ship-wrecked nearby in 1630 for eight months which was the first European settlement in South Africa
