Take the walk down the boardwalk on to the pebble beach but do not stop there. At very low tide you can go right around the corner. Dramatic views of the pinnacle of rock. Then go another 50m around the next corner and there are...More

Have to say I was disappointed. Lots of people arrived not knowing you had to book or even pay to see anything. There seems to be a communication issue. I wouldn't recommend this place for young children either as they will not appreciate it or...More

Visited on an unusually still day with two young boys (aged 3 & 4). Welcoming and informative guide and caters for children and adults well. Some of the stairs get quite steep at the top, so those less mobile may find difficult. Exceptional view at...More

A beautiful place to do your morning stroll along the boardwalk. The view is stunning with free flow of fresh air. I would advice to wear a thick jacket because the place is really cold with strong wind.

Walk down to the Cape, with lots, and I mean lots of steps, but its all worth it. Sunny day with nice breeze, and stunning views. Do a tour of the Lighthouse, not expensive, and get a great view. You may even see a whale..,...More

Really nice walk- must do the boardwalk loop to the pebble beach- incredible views. Would be very strenuous however for some as once you get down to the beach you have to walk up the boardwalk again and there's lots of stairs.

I liked that white Cape Schanck lighthouse with a red roof. It was surrounded by trees. It was attractive. I had fun looking for the lighthouse while we were walking. It was beautiful! Worthwhile to see!

Went there on a cold, wet day. The wooden walkway was quite slippery. But it was a nice walk nonetheless. The lighthouse itself was not open.
