  • I loved this place! I’ve been a few times - a great place to visit when I want a lift. A great place to take friends visiting but also to go to on my own or with dogs! A wonderful experience  more »
  • Myself and a friend walked the coast on a really cold Feb day. There was so many people around the weather didn't deter people. The views and scenes of cliffs and sea are amazing. The walk isn't overl...  more »

  • Beautiful! A lovely break from the city. Gorgeous view of the harbour and cliffs. Easy walk, but wear sensible shoes. Easy to bus to/from!
  • We did the purple route along the peninsula, which was really an excellent choice. Around every turn another breathtaking view of the stunning coastal area. What I liked was that also the vegetation changes quite a bit depending on which side your are on. Also found the purple route to be challenging enough without feeling that it was too much. Make sure you wear appropriate footwear as it is a bit slippery sometimes. We did the hike on a sunny winter day, which was perfect. It had been raining though the days before which made the route, especially land inwards very muddy. No reason for not doing this amazing trail though. Overall the purple route is about 13km which took us, including breaks about 3 hours.
  • Love this walk. It's not too strenuous so people of any fitness levels can give it a go. It can be a bit muddy so old shoes and trousers are better. When you get out on the walk itself there are some beautiful views over How the harbour and lighthouse. Well worth a visit.
  • Beautiful walk, unfortunately our car window was smashed in the lot and our trunk was opened and all our luggage was stolen. The police later found our,bags strewn in the street and my laptop for school was missing and camera...few other things. Don't leave ANYTHING in your car, even if it's hidden or in the trunk. Apparently thieves will follow you there and follow you on your walk to make sure you are far away from your car. The cliffs were beautiful, but be prepared or take a taxi.
  • Excellent place for walk. Superb views. But as we are with our baby, we were not able to complete the walk with her pram. Otherwise for the adult walkers place is excellent.
