This walk takes you to a really cool hidden bay where you can overlook the sea and waves. It is well worth a trip down to this hidden gem even if it means a walk from the town.

The walking path is an easy walk down to the viewing platform, but to get a real appreciation of the erosion you should take the steps down to the beach and extend your walk. The sand is squishy under your feet which does not make it an easy walk but venture around the bend and you will be rewarded.

This must be one of the most pretty tracks around, stunning native bush and birds then out onto the most gorgeous beach and rock formations. I never get sick of it. The track has apparently been recently tidied up...well done DOC great job.

Make sure the tide is low so that you can walk on the beach side as well. Nice seaweed and shells ashore.

This was really impressive to see. It’s a short walk but we spent a while exploring the beach and the large undercut.
