This fantastic trail starts off along the beach and then climbs up onto the cliffs. The views of the bluffs and ocean are astounding. This is a flat walk that is great for all age groups.

HikingMuddy

superb hike along two amazing white sand beaches with deep blue sea. although muddy and boggy in places this was a lovely place to explore with amazing views all along the trail. straight forward in terms of visible tracks and there's a tarmac track in some places. the sand dunes near the end after the cairn are a highlight too. thoroughly enjoyed this even with sporadic wind and rain!

do you know, if there are any steps on the trail? i would like to walk it with my son who rolls with a swisstrac and a wheelchair. it can go through sand and up and down on small paths but no stairs / high steps.

First to Review

Sandy beach start of the hike with light drizzle. But the beauty of this penninsula is equal whatever conditions are. Climbing the head clouds started disappearing and we had the most spectacular nature experience out there. It is a must walk this trail... forget the Wrath struggle cone to this free trail
