We went for a hike on our last day in Plett.There are 3 routes to choose from, an easy 2km to a more challenging 9km to the Point. The views were absolutely amazing😁The 9km route involves some rock climbing so I would suggest some sturdy hiking shoes and enough water.I only took 500ml,was definitely not enough.

We did the medium walk which took a couple of hours with fantastic views all round. Well worth the visit. Would recommend suitable walking footwear as some parts of the walk are a bit tricky.

Relatively long walk of a few hours with some minor rock climbs. Lots of variation with beach, rock, path, etc. Great views of the seals below.

This walk is varied and includes rock scrambles, hiking up and down a giant sand dune, and following paths right on the edge of the cliff. We saw... More

A perfect place to hike, you can choose between short, medium and long trails. The left of the reserve (closest to Plett) offers views of the seal colony from above and sometimes dolphins and sharks too. If you are there for sunset you will be rewarded with the most beautiful views.There is a stunning beach perfect for picnics and a... More
