We visited Robberg on a clear but very windy day; as it turned out the wind really added to our enjoyment. The waves on the southwestern exposure were spectacular as they crashed onto the rocks and turned the seawater into a living white mass of foam. There were white caps on the Indian Ocean as far as we could seed, and the entire seashore was spectacular. On the northeasterly quieter side, we saw literally hundreds of seals basking on the rocks. We also saw small groups of 3 or 5 seals playing in the water.
We found that we were able to walk to the Reserve from Plettenberg, and leave out car at our lodging. There is a footbridge over the stream by Beacon Island, and this allowed us to go directly to the beach. About 400 metres from the south end of the beach there is a stairway that leads to a public parking area. We used this path to get to the road leading into Robberg. The trails in the reserve can be demanding, so you need good shoes and some conditioning.
