Very scenic walk and a nice hike on a clear day, nice to be able to see seals and other wildlife along the way, if you start from the information centre it’s a long walk but you can drive to the car park where the hike begins and make it more enjoyable. You drive the same bit you would walk from the info centre so don’t miss any views.

promenade dans le sable agréable mais assez venteux.

super rando. pas technique et globalement assez plats. super paysages. très ombragé. je conseille de rallonger un peu et d'inclure la boucle jusqu'au pitts head et de faire un plouf par là bas. entre 7 et 8 h avec la petite boucle en plus, la baignade et le pique nique.

Steep both ways, but tunnel and vistas were so worth it. I recommend sneakers for the steepness, and cameras for the view.

Absolutely beautiful peninsula hike, lots of variety from beach, bush & farm land. This park was only opened in 2013 so it’s well developed with various parking areas, picnic areas, bbq’s, a large wharf for fishing off, a small camping area you have to walk to, great facilities block. A destination drive, stop at Clevedon cafes for excellent coffee, food or make a complete day of it on a Sunday & go to the Clevedon markets too.

L'arrêt vaut le coup si c'est sur votre route mais ne faite pas de détour juste pour y aller.

Beautiful, easy trail to an ancient Maori settlement. Incredible views.

Did this walk with friends in February - gorgeous views, windy and warm at the same time. Suggest you wear good shoes as it’s a flat walk over large and small pebbles, gravel & sand. We saw 5 red fur seals which is rare this time of year and the top of the South Island because from a distance because it was a beautiful clear day.

Great trail. the hike over the hill isn't as long as you may thing. After meandering along the beach, around the rocks and over the hill it took about 20 mins max. If you add on the lookout be prepared to get a little dirty in summer as very dusty and steep but worth the view

Belle balade avec vue sur la plage mais la vue reste à peu près la même tout au long de la marche.

Lovely bushland loop ideal for trail running. Surprisingly quiet from 5-7pm. Steady incline with only a few flat bits all the way up. Lots of little side trails if you want to challenge yourself with some more steep sections. Great views at the top.

Great trail for all fitness levels! You can start the trail from either the lighthouse side or the seal colony side. It doesn’t matter as there’s toilets and enough parking spaces on both sides. The trail moves along the coastline and sometimes through private property which is why you have to step over some fences several times. Be wary when walking with young children as the path has some open areas where you can walk off very deep cliffs. Other than that, pretty safe :) We couldn’t find an entrance to the lighthouse

Vom Parkplatz zum Separation Point und zurück. angenehmer Wanderweg mit schönen Aussichten. Er als am Separation Point. Breiter Weg, gut ausgebaut

Lovely walk, lots of trails to follow, quite a few steps up to the top but rewarding walk with stunning views from the top. 30-40 minutes each way all uphill so some fitness required.

Awesome views. Good hard ascent. Suggest do the hill first and relax around the base

Beautiful walk! Bit humid and wish I brought a bathing suit to go into the bay. Bring lots of water!

Lovely short walk between Furneaux and Punga Cove lodges. Good track. Quite a few seat options for a break if needed. Beautiful sunny day.

magnifique randonnée. a commencer tôt (8h ou avant) pour être seul au phare qui est quasiment le début de la randonnée. compter 4 à 5 h pour l'aller retour. vérifier les horaires de marée car a marée haute il faudra faire un détour et donc compter plus de temps. super paysages très variés le long du parcours.

Either way you take this hike, clockwise or anti clockwise it is spectacular. You’ll have to check the tides as you cannot pass the beach side at high tide without getting wet as. There is a gnarly staircase at either end that will burn the legs up but the views from the top are worth it. Great trail took me about 90 minutes

Belle randonnée, beaux paysages. compter entre 3 et 4 heures pour l'aller-retour. attention cependant a la marée. si elle est haute elle peut vous bloquer l'accès vers la seconde plage. (au pire le retour est faisable en prenant par la gravel road)

I started this walk at Deep Water Cove and decided to walk up to the lighthouse and hut. It is steep up from the start so good to excellent fitness is needed for sure. The views however make up for any steep sections. It is up and down all the way until you hit the lighthouse. The walk down to the hut is downhill so very easy on the knees and legs. I had to wait another hour for the water taxi pick up but the views and waves crashing on the shores makes it amazing.
