When we first stopped in Plettenberg Bay about 6 years ago I didn't really get what all the hype is about, now I know. We kind of accidentally ended up at Robberg but a fantastic accident it sure was. The scenery is breathtaking and walk...More

We did the 5k walk including the island as it was low tide - it is worth checking the tide when you go. It is a lovely well marked trail - quite a lot of up and downs and some walking over rocks. Spectacular views...More

We did the 5k--we had a bit of scrambling and also hiked down toward sand dunes. The vistas and the hike were just gorgeous! One thing to note, towards the end of this moderate hike, a strong wave hit the rocks and hit 2 kids...More

'The point' walk was the nicest walk we did so far in south africa. The robberg nature reserve is something you can not miss during yout trip. I thought it was more beautiful, and less touristic than Tsitsikamma.

What an awesome hike to do with the family. We had children from 8 years to 15 years and even the teenagers loved it. We saw lots of cape fur seals, dolphins and whales. We did the whole route and had a picnic at the...More

A fantastic stroll in the morning. There are various routes that one can do each with its own level of difficulty. Walked it on a blisteringly warm day, so I would suggest water and food, preferably fruit, dont want people littering all over the mountain...More

A beautiful experience for locals and visitors - braai on the Robberg and watch the sunset - the hike to the Gap is also very special with spectacular views

Arrival is sad as the old gate house & some bush fire damage is evidence of the recent devastating fires. And then..beauty enfolds you around every corner of this mostly easy hike. The scenery is breathtakingly beautiful. Bring your camera! This is a must do...More

The Roberg hike is not difficult at all, you would make it. I met two kids that were below 10 years who were having fun time walking Roberg

Recommended that you don't start long walk after 14.00 but this would not be critical in summer, and at low tide. Long walk is estimated at 31/2 - 4 hours. But don't underestimate the walk - see recent comments.
