“Beautiful and not as difficult as reviewed”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 25, 2011

My husband and I did the hike today and it was beautiful. I was a bit nervous because of some of the reviews but the path is extremely well marked. It took us 3.5 hours to go all the way around with stops. We are in pretty good shape but nothing out of the ordinary. It was not strenuous but there are some rocky areas where you do have to be careful not to trip. Would definitely recommend it.

“Simply spectacular”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 20, 2011

I love this walk, its a really special experience. Depending on what you want to do you can alter your route and pace to your fitness level as well as what you want to see.
The island beach is a great place to spend some time sunbathing and swimming just be careful of currents and strong backwashes.
I would advise people to make a day of it, take a backpack with some lunch and stop along the way to look at the views both back into Plett and out to sea.
The route (if you're fit and walk hard) can be done in about 3.5 hours but I'd suggest you plan for 6 and take it at an easier pace. The point walk is not for the unfit or less agile amoungst us but if you can handle a lot of stairs then just go to the island.

“Great fun climbing round the peninsular”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 22, 2011

Excellent long walk round the peninsular - be prepared for lots of rock climbing, its a physical walk but well worth it for the views. don't forget sunscreen even if cloudy!

“Amazing cliff walks and bags of wildlife”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 6, 2011

This was the walk of our holiday - a whole day out, everything from vertical cliffs to fur seals, loads of birdlife and a lovely sandy beach. It took around 6 hours to get around the whole peninsula, with a fair few stops to watch the views and wildlife. Highly photogenic.

Stunning walk, but you need to pick a nice day to walk and be reasonably fit
