Short maintained walk to views of ocean, mountains, and a dune lake all in a single panorama view. Nice break from driving.

Lovely short walk on a calm day, great bird wildlife seen around the lake like friendly silvereyes and purple swamphens. Liked the info signs about the trees too! Kiwis keep their tracks so well maintained, it’s incredible!

The lake is nice but the walk is crowded and nothing special. If you go in the morning then just before you get to the lake there's a great view of Mt Cook and Mt Tasman, I saw the sun glimmering through the crowds and it was incredible.

The trail is fairly crowded and nothing particularly special, but the reflections off the lake are crystal clear and make for great photos.
