This hike was amazing even in the fog! At first I was a bit disappointed coming upon the reserve in fog, but it burned off in spurts. What was really stunning was the gap between the rocks which takes about 10 minutes of walking to...More

Beautiful walk in pristine surroundings! We did the "Witsand" walk - took us two hours at a gentle pace. Some climbing involved but not too strenuous. Only slightly out of breath :-) Highly recommended!

Hi, We are debating between the 9km and the 6km hike. Four of us are all pretty fit but not sure if scrambling is for all of us. What would we be missing if we only did the 6km route? Would we still see the marine life?

The Roberg hike is not difficult at all, you would make it. I met two kids that were below 10 years who were having fun time walking Roberg
By what time will I have to reach back at the entrance after the hike?

Recommended that you don't start long walk after 14.00 but this would not be critical in summer, and at low tide. Long walk is estimated at 31/2 - 4 hours. But don't underestimate the walk - see recent comments.
Hi There Is there car parking nearby? Thanks! Linda
