It's a nice short walk. Lovely views in the forest. However a part of the walk (beach part) was closed for maintenance. There was no sign for this at the beginning. Still a lovely view of the coastline. Sadly we couldn't get to the beach. Walk time is less then 15 minutes.

Can’t find anything on the web but there’s tape around the sign and a fence across the path. Good thing there are other good tracks around here if you have a car (Porarari river!) but you’d be livid if you walked out here for nothing.

We tried to do this track, but it has currently been closed. It would be worth checking with the DOC website to see if it has restrictions before attempting this path.

A rather easy walk along a nice path that meanders slightly downwards brings you to the Marine Reserve where you get nice panoramas (Shoe Island) and even a view of a waterfall ...

This is only a short walk but the beach at the end is unlike anything else. The west coast has some very strong destructive waves and very resistant rock; this mix creates stunning erosional features such as caves and pristine pebble beaches. We went after a heavy downpour which created mini waterfalls from the cliffs.

Stunning walk scenery and it is so quick (half and hour or so) that you can do it on the road.
