Bequia Plantation is about as boutique as it gets, with just 22 rooms and cottages clustered around an idyllic beach on the shores of admiralty bay. The recently-refurbished rooms are split between the main plantation house and gingerbread-style cottages, and perfectly in keeping with your seaside surroundings. It’s just a short walk along a scenic boardwalk to the charming little town of Port Elizabeth, with its colourful wooden buildings and a choice of bars and restaurants.
