Better than Punakaiki, great rainforest walk down ti Cliffs and a wild beach where you can walk down and see the waves, wind and waterfalls all shaping the land

This was a short walk to a rock shelf overlooking the Truman cove and best done at any other time than high tide.The highlight is a small waterfall pouring off a wave-eroded limestone overhang directly onto the beach. Gorgeous setting

We pulled into the car park finding only 1 other car there-visiting in the evening has benefits. A short 10 minute walk through the rainforest takes you to the lookout. The views are stunning and well worth taking the time to just stop and stare....More

15 minute walk through beautiful rainforest to get to a small beach on the right side which you can go down and explore. Great for little kids as there is a small waterfall. This place pulls at the emotional ties of being in nature. Beautiful...More

Short track (10-15 mins) which gets you to a breathtaking beach with a waterfall, carved limestone walls and stunning views. Must be great to watch sunset there.

My family enjoyed an enchanting few hours here and could have stayed longer if we didn't need to be on the road to our next destination. The walk down is lovely through the bush, and very easy. We could hear tui and wood pigeons singing...More
