Lovely walk but quite tiring so you need to be fit to do the whole thing. You can do half or less. Magnificent views.

It is a park with a great hike. However you have to be early, as the parking space is small, and it is then necessary to park outside the gate and walk about 1.5 km to the start of the hike

Incredible coastal walk. We only had a short time there, but so glad we went. Beautiful, unmissable walk. You can have a quick dip in the sea, and see some stinky seals from the top of the hill.

Trainers shall be fine. 4-5 hours are good enough for the whole circuit and some time to spend sunbathing if you wish to.

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.
