    Walked out and watched the sea lions finding their lunch. Enjoyed the vistas over to Taiaroa Head where we had seen the albatross colony day before. Well worth the drive out from Dunedin

    Beautiful walk along the water front with stairwell access points down to the watwrs edge when the tide is right.
    Views are amazing and they go on for miles.
    Plenty of cafes, restaurants, coffee stops along the way.
    There is a really cool rock pool at the top end (small charge to enter I think)
    Great strolling spot to unwind at the end of the day or meet up with famiky and friends for lunch.

    Great weather made this a terrific day. The walk was fairly easy, interesting and above all not crowded or to too manicured . Well worth the visit.

    The Ocean is beautiful cause it belongs to Earth. It was here before you and it will be here after you. Enjoy the Earth. It is a place to visit.

    Stayed in the freedom camp area. Absolute blissful peaceful night! It was Summer, No insects, mozies, sandflies, or anything else which was great. Porta loos available closely to use, very clean as only a few campers at that time. No prickles in the grass area. I had my two qee dogs in the camper, someone else had a dog also so assuming it's OK as long as in camper/under control? Weather quite warm in the mid 20s. Stayed a few nights. Will stay again as it's the quietest place at night. Lost of space to park and a great beach just a 5 minute walk.

    We were told by a local to visit this hidden gem to see sea lions and we were not disappointed! It is along a dirt/ gravel road for 4 km and then you park, cross 2 sty’s on foot across private land to get to the beach. On the way, just to the side if the road we saw sea lions playing and sun bathing- we were probably less than 10 meters away, it was amazing !! On the beach we saw more sunbathing. This is a must do/see experience. Note there are no toilets out at the beach. The beach is long, rugged and beautiful.
