Splendid!

The views are magnificent. Get out of your car and walk along Cliff Drive to fully appreciate the splendor. Beautiful no matter the weather - the surfers are always out there.u

Cycling along the West Cliff Drive was very relaxing as once you are up the hill by the Boardwalk then it is flat. Cars travel slowly along the road and so you feel safe cycling. It is possible to go all the way along to the Natural Bridges State Park and this will take about 45 minutes on a bike.... More

Great place to walk along the coast. Lots of walking space, overlooks, and places to walk down to tide pools and small beaches. If you're lucky you'll find parking in one of the overlook lots lining the road. Keep driving on past the boardwalk and you'll find a lighthouse on seabright beach.

Tripadvisor should add an option for family with a senior. Don't people take old people out anymore? Or family simply? It's a beautiful drive on a sunny day. We came when it was totally gloomy and cold and windy. The scene became gloomy and you feel depressed looking at it. Pictures came out grey and not much of a sunset... More

Went on weekday afternoon, easy with little traffic. Take enough time to enjoy the views and stop to appreciate. Great ocean, cliff, beach views with parks and interesting homes thrown in.

I went on a cold, wet morning but there were still a lot of people walking. Parking was a little creepy as there were people living in their cars. The ocean was rather flat so there were only three surfers; all beginners.
