We took the long 11 km hike. It took about 4 hours to complete. This is a moderate hike with plenty of climbing. The views on this route is just spectacular to say the least. My daughter of 10 had no problem with this hike, although younger kids could have problems along the way. Bring enough water for the long... More

Stunning scenery and a great outing around Robberg - spectacular views of the bay. A great walk/ easy hike for adults as well as teenagers which takes about 2 hours or longer - recommend a picnic on the beach.

Breathtaking scenery - beaches, sand dunes, hills, rocky coastline and seals too! The walls are well marked and it was not too busy when we went in April.

There are 3 ways to go. They are all around the island. The longest way around is about 9 km. We did the second round until the eiland. There is a nice and big beach down there. You can see a lot of dassies during your hiking and if your lucky you'll probably see the smallest antelope in south africa.... More

The walks offered here are so well laid out and the pay offs in terms of views are incredible! Everything is so well managed and organised it really is a pleasure. Unforgettable hikes!

Close to Plett and a range of walking options. There's a relatively easy 3 km walk to the gap, the 5km option to the half-way point (fantastic descent down a steep sand dune, great fun!) and the occasionally very tough full circuit, which is supposed to be 9.5km but feels longer. There's also a little island to the west of... More

This peninsula near Plettenberg Bay is an amazing place to hike, but bring your hiking boots. Carefully decide what hike is best for you as the longest is 9 kilometers and fairly difficult. The shortest hike is 2+ kilometers and not as easy as the length suggests, but ok for a fit 66 year old. The views from the path... More
