The Robberg reserve is the promontory that sticks out at the south end of Plettenberg Bay. It was a stunningly beautiful hike that is somewhat exposed at some points. Many hikers can hear the seal colony barking (we didn't), and some hikers also spotted a great white shark down in the waters.

A great hike especially for the experienced. There are 3 different hikes which makes it easy for all kinds of hikers... I would not recommend it for little kids.

Walking at the Robberg Nature Reserve was just amazing. That a must in Plettenberg, even if it is the small round :)

You have the choice of three different circular routes. Since I arrived at 2 pm I opted for the middle one. It was a great hike in nice weather and almost no people at all. It was fun watching seals in the water and also walking in a lot of sand. If I had better time I would have taken the long route.
