an amazing hike. beautiful views over the bay. some parts are quiet tough. you can easly spend a day here. Swimming is not recommended because of the sharks. but a picnic in the sand dunes watching seals, dolphins or hamerhead sharks is pretty amazing too.

A very lovely place to visit if you are near by. You can select from different hiking routes (shorter to longer). A lovely and safe break away from generally not so safe Plettenberg town.

Great walk. Not as difficult as lions head or table mountain. Couple of strenuous climbing parts but mostly not too challenging. We did the 9km which was pretty long. Started at around 2pm and took around 4 hours with only short stop offs. Defo take...More

You get several very different perspectives of the peninsula as you progress along and down. Walking was a little difficult at times due to rocks and very big steps but otherwise the track was pleasant. Not suitable for young children due to these issues. Many...More

This hike was amazing even in the fog! At first I was a bit disappointed coming upon the reserve in fog, but it burned off in spurts. What was really stunning was the gap between the rocks which takes about 10 minutes of walking to...More

Hi, We are debating between the 9km and the 6km hike. Four of us are all pretty fit but not sure if scrambling is for all of us. What would we be missing if we only did the 6km route? Would we still see the marine life?

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
By what time will I have to reach back at the entrance after the hike?

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.
Hi There Is there car parking nearby? Thanks! Linda
