Robberg Nature Reserve, Plettenberg Bay
Tel: 27 44 533 2125
Concierge.com's insider take:
A sweeping peninsula five miles south of Plettenberg Bay, Robberg has some of the best hiking in the area. It takes about four hours to circumnavigate along narrow cliff-top paths and down sweeping drifts of powder-fine sand. Your rewards: incredible views of the bay, the colonies of Cape fur seals at the base of the cliffs, and dolphins and whales swimming close to shore. Word to the wise: Rain is commonplace all year, and storms can strike with very little warning at this wild and wonderful place.
