About Archrock Resort
Walking along the Garden Route coast in any direction is a wonderful opportunity to appreciate its natural splendor. The area is a natural paradise of trees, woods, fynbos, rivers, and ocean since the coastal platform narrows here. Arch Rock and the Matjies River are popular spots for a picnic, and the cliff walk back to ArchRock Resort is a popular way to get back. There is also an ancient Strandlopers’ tunnel located on the cliff near the seashore, which gives an excellent vantage point for seeing dolphins and whales.
Luxurious self-catering accommodations right on the sand. ArchRock Resort is a delight for the discriminating traveler looking for opulent beachside lodging. Relax and rejuvenate in the unspoiled natural surroundings of rainforest, ocean, and beach at Keurboomstrand, a little community on South Africa’s Garden Route.
Unrivaled views of Plettenberg Bay and the Robberg Peninsula Reserve may be seen from the Robberg Peninsula Reserve and Nature’s Valley. ArchRock is named after a distinctive rock feature on Keurbooms Beach. It’s ideal if you just sit back and enjoy the view of the waves crashing into the ‘nave’ and the clear blue sky above you.
Plettenberg Bay is just a 10-minute drive south, and en route, you’ll pass by the Keurbooms River, which has its own island. Skiing, hiking, canoeing, and boat cruises are all common activities along the river. Knysna, South Africa’s favourite town in 2004, is just minutes away and is host to the world-famous Knysna Lagoon, Knysna Heads, and the popular Knysna oyster. Afrikaans and English are spoken languages.
