  • Robberg is one of our favourite places to visit, and we were excited to do so again! Upon arrival, we found that the access hiking trail was altered, for the better, in our opinion. It now allows...  more »
  • It is a great area to walk so do take a trip there. Take water and good walking shoes and you will have a great outing.  more »
  • Simply beautiful. We did the 5km walk. Maybe a bit too difficult / tricky with 3 years old: some portions require a good balance.  more »

  • Awesome hike, the shorter route is mostly family friendly. A few big steps and climbs but beautiful views and vegetation makes you forget about the sore legs quickly. Reasonably fitness level suggested, but not essential.
  • The reserve is very nice and the views are beautiful. The walking paths are in a good condition and safe. There are maps and it is easy to find your way around. Definitely worth the trip for the views and the experience.
  • I don’t do that much hiking but this is definitely the best one I have ever done. The scenery is out of this world and you have lots of spots to take pics. There are three main trails you can select to do depending on your fitness level. Give it a try you wont be disappointed.
  • A lovely nature trail in good weather. Exceptional views. We found many ants during the hot months of Jan & Feb. If the entire distance is too much for you, you can just do half. There are a few steep gradients. There are picnic spots at the carpark overlooking the ocean - perfect for refreshments after the walk. No restaurant. Take water and would recommend taking a walking pole.
  • Best not to say too much and too many visitors creates a human ripple effect. If you go for a walk here go because you are Conscious and honouring of Nature. if you are going to be a tourist go to the mall.
