DRIVING DIRECTIONS FROM PORT ELIZABETH (GQEBERHA)

Stanley Island is approximately two and a half hours drive (220km) from Port Elizabeth along the N2 national road. The Keurbooms River is the first of two rivers 5km before Plettenberg Bay. Just after the long descent with the most beautiful view of the Robberg Peninsula (you’ve arrived in paradise!) you will see a small sign on your right hand side “Ferries” just before the Keurbooms River bridge. Take the right and turn first left through the boom gate (say that you are Stanley Island guests for free access). Drive underneath the bridge and park your car near the big jetty next to the slipway. Please give us a call upon arrival so we can send the ferry to collect you! Please ensure that you arrive before sundown due to the ferry crossing.

DRIVING DIRECTIONS FROM CAPE TOWN

Stanley Island is approximately five and a half hours drive (500km) from Cape Town along the N2 national road.

HOW DOES THE FERRY WORK? WHAT ARE THE FERRY TIMES? 

The Ferry runs at your convenience. The ferry is privately owned and we will provide you with our ferry driver's number when you arrive so that you can contact whoever is on duty to collect and drop you off. However, please keep in mind a fifteen minute timeframe for the ferry driver to get to the boat and collect you. This is the beauty of the Island, but it can also sometimes be a little time-consuming.

 

Please be mindful of the evenings as we do charge R200.00 per person after midnight. The money goes straight to our ferry drivers for their time.
