Went after sunset. Very moody with the crashing surf and lights. Read the plaques about the lives and boats lost at the river bar. On a night like tonight one can see the dangers.

We had been to Greymouth before but not to the Grey mouth until now. From the constant swell and power of the sea, you can see why they built the breakwater. We were there on a mild day, but you could tell that the sea (Tasman) is unforgiving. Keep everything tied down otherwise it will blow away. I look forward to going back when the sea is really rough! This attraction is FREE

The ideal place for photography, birds, boats, waves and sea! You can easily park up there and watch the work go by. There are clean and accessible public toilets at the beginning of the breakwater. It is amazing to watch a boat come in and easy to imagine how so many have been lost on the bar over the years.

An amazing place to visit, we were there on a dark with bright sunshine and not a breath of wind and the waves crashing in were still intense. It's easy to see how this is NZ's most dangerous patch of water. I found it to be a somber place with the plaques dedicated to those who have lost their lives in the surrounding water. Well worth a visit showcasing some of NZ's short history. The memorial being in the shape of a boat is a nice nautical touch. Well designed.
