Robberg Nature Reserve

Further east, the Robberg peninsula juts out into the sea. Exposed to the elements, it’s been battered to form interesting rock and sand formations. Its cliffs peer down to seal colonies playing gracefully in clear waters. At The Island, waves crash from two sides creating a pretty beach surrounded by fynbos covered cliffs. There are three trails to choose from, ranging in length. Be prepared for the peninsula’s own micro-climate. Despite being within minutes of the busy tourist hub of Pletternberg Bay, Robberg has the feel of being worlds apart. It’s easy to get absorbed by the views.
