Short track leading to a great view of the beach and stairs that can be taken down to the beach. The sand covers rocks in places and can go from soft to hard quickly and sporadically. Not much traffic in the area and can allow for some seclusion. Please note that parking is on the inside of a curve so be careful of traffic.

A nice , short and easy trail to the sea.

Great hike for sunset, though we did it in the morning. Low effort, high reward. Cool waterfall that goes into the beach.

Such a lovely little track to stretch your legs when you're on the road! Very well maintained, not too busy and lots of birds around. First you enter this mini-jungle and you end up at a nice beach with a waterfall.

Such a great track especially after the crowded and noisy Pancake Rocks track - quiet, unpopulated by people and cameras, unhurried through a patch of rainforest with a lovely beach and waterfall at the end. Take the time to enjoy this one, particularly if you've just done the Pancakes.
