Country Life magazine rates Robberg in Top 5 CapeNature reserves 

Published: March 19th, 2019

Country Life magazine has rated their top 5 CapeNature reserves and it’s no surprise that Robberg is right up there with the best of them.

According to Country Life:

No trip to Plettenberg Bay is complete until you’ve walked the Robberg Nature Reserve peninsula – or at least part of it. The trails along the route show just how diverse this part of the Garden Route is; from the wave-beaten prehistoric rocks at the point and the climbing-falling dune to the rugged fynbos landscape and thriving seal colony.

There are three hiking trails through the reserve and if you’ve got the time, we recommend tackling the four-hour Point Circuit which will lead you to the very edge of the peninsula. For a day at the beach, take the two-hour Witsand Circuit to the climbing-falling dune and enjoy a dip. There are also several significant Stone Age sites that shows how humans co-existed peacefully with nature.

Overnight in the self-catering Fountain Shack and allow the waves of the Indian Ocean to lull you to sleep.
