Fantastic route along the cliff edge, even for those who may not be very fit. We started the walk late hence could not complete all 7km. The views are breathtaking. Only minus point would be the bicycles going up and down, and some of them...More

We hired mountain bikes and climbed the path - it was quite tough terrain on bikes but the views made up for it! Unfortunately the restaurant / bar on route was closed but I can imagine it’s lovely to sit and have a refuel there!!

My husband and I really enjoyed this walk. The views are absolutely stunning. I would advise going in the morning before it gets too hot. Allow extra time for stopping and taking lots of photos, wear some comfy shoes, take some water and enjoy!
