Description:The Robberg Peninsula is a nature reserve and a national monument. A moderately strenuous circular walk which leads out high on the northern side of Robberg to the point, returning along the southern coastline to the Gap.
Also the site of Nelson Bay Cave - first occupied 120 000 years ago. Hundreds of seals gather on the rocks at Grasnek and be viewed easily from high up on the cliffs. A perfect opportunity to see dolphins, penguins, and whales. ( whales only in season).
The huge diversity of bird life, amazing Fynbos, and evidence of rocks dating back to the early Cretaceous period ( 130 - 110 million years ago) make this an extremely enjoyable walk with spectacular coastal scenery. An experience not easily forgotten.
