The best part of this walk was leaving! The beach was extremely windy with a lot of blowing sand, a lot of broken shells on the beach and a lot of Driftwood on the beach from the recent cyclone. There really are no views other than looking at the water and the brush on shore and to want to complete a 7.5 mile hike with this view and these conditions is ridiculously absurd. we only walked 3 miles and that was enough. there are significantly better hikes to do versus the farewell spit hike so skip this if you have limited time or even if you have extra time and instead, go on to some other hikes.

Horrid walk! Very windy, sand blowing, seaweed everywhere, lots of driftwood on the sand, large pieces of broken shells, views are uninteresting and fo not change. not worth the effort.
