When my wife said we need to go here, I was not convinced as it was a far walk. But so glad we did it and can't wait to go again. The walk was nice and not too difficult, here and there a bit of a steep climb. Take a lot of water and sunscreen with as it a long walk. There are more that one route, we did the Witsand route that was around 5.5km, but would like to do the 9km walk next time. The views are stunning all along the whole route. The beach is probably one of the the most beautiful beaches and settings I have seen.
Highly recommended

Excellent hike with stunning views. Take sunscreen along since there is no shade on this hike.

The first stretch is rather easy with views of Plettenberg Bay and the seal colony. Once you get to the point you need to scramble over some boulders.

We decided to also visit The Island this time. The new wooden boardwalk is a fantastic improvement to the Robberg Hike. I was surprised by the absolutely magnificent views on the other side of The Island.

Hiking back to the starting point resulted in a hike of approximately 10km. Take some snacks if you think you may run out of energy towards the end. It is also recommended to take a jacket, enough water, a hat, sunglasses and a phone. Wear running/hiking shoes and a swimsuit if you want to cool off.

We came to the walk, it’s a world heritage site and I can see why. The walk is not for the unfit or the disabled as there is some scrambling involved. We did the medium walk which is about 5.5km.
The views are spectacular with cliff views overlooking seal colonies. The beach is lovely but the sand was so hot underfoot.
Make sure you are wearing trainers as it is difficult terrain.

Starting with a picnic, overlooking the ocean, my wife and I proceeded to enjoy the walk to pristine beach. Hiking was at times exhilarating, on the edge of the hill, with lion seals at the bottom. The beach was just too pristine and breathtaking.

Gorgeous views and definitely worth seeing. If you have young children and you want to go, do the smaller hike or 2.1 km. We did the 5.5 km with our two year old daughter. Not only were parts of it extremely challenging while holding a toddler but it was also way too cold and way too long for her. Was honestly gorgeous but just extremely impractical

We spend a lot of time climbing mountains and rocks and appreciating the beautiful views. Tips: Take something to drink, shoes to climb, and if your not sure, take the 5km climb. Some steps is very high and for the 9km you have to be fit. If the wind is very strong, it can be dangerous.

The most beautiful hike- we did the 5.5km Witsand with my 9 and 12 year old kids . There was a lot of complaining until we reached Witsand and we were all speechless at the beauty! There is a large sand dune you walk down between two parts of the ocean. We were lucky to have seals swimming right near the Witsand shore.

From Witsand back you walk along rocks literally on the edge of a cliff and my kids found this scary but managed.

Pack lots of water- we were not prepared and ran out Quickly.

I would do it again- it’s amazing!

This is a longer hike than you think but well worth it.... look over the edge for whales and sharks, see loads of seals and gorgeous views and cliffs. Not for the weak. Not for the easily tired. Not for the super old or young. Follow the path, if you go backwards you need to climb a 1 km sand dune!! That is hard. The beach is awesome and the sea is rough. You need a few hours here!!

Keep an eye out for the sharks! Great walk, make sure you have a few hours to spend there. The hike around the point take a while, but has to be done at least once!
