Robberg Peninsula

The Robberg Peninsula is a national monument nature reserve and marine protected area that lies about 8 km south of Plettenberg Bay.

[For detailed times and conditions of access, see the Cape Nature map, from which the following information has been extracted.]

Robberg’s rocks date back to the early Cretaceous period (130-110 million years ago/) and the earliest break-up of Gondwanaland – a prehistoric super-continent that split up into latter-day South America, Africa, Antarctica, India and Australia about 120 million years ago. The rocks at Robberg were deposited in the bed of this new African sea.
