The area is lovely and there are several walks of varying lengths so you can pick one that suits your fitness level. The views were stunning and if you're lucky you might spot whales and dolphins. If not, then there's always the seal colony for...More

Loved this area, great for walking but be aware that some of the trails are not easy. Great views and we saw seals, dolphins and whales!

Quite tough walks as some scrambling is required, take water, but breathtaking views - it fortunately was not too badly affected by the fires

If nature calms you, if fresh air makes you feel clean and if you love to get exercise then this hike/walk is the only place you would ever want to be. A cleaner and more unspoiled place you will not easily find. Robberg mountain is...More

As an exercise it is doable in 3 hours - but the strait of beach at the end is worth stopping for. It is close to the parking lot so you don´t have to worry about never finishing the end. It is recommendable to start...More

Well worth a visit. There are a few different routes you can take across the reserve but beware all have some very high steps and parts have no footpath at all. Instead just rocks. It can feel at times like you are required to climb....More

Robberg nature reserve is an natural wonder. We started on 1 hour walk but changed it up to 3 hours - and wished we had more time. It is beautiful. The walks are along edges of a cliff, across sand, and up and down stairs....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.
