“Interesting coastal walk with views and geological formations”
Reviewed January 28, 2013

A decent walk along well constructed paths wiith viewing points , this walk gives you views well out into the gulf. This part of the coast is fairly exposed so dress appropriately in winter and note that there is little or no shade in summer. Wear covered in shoes. The walk south leads into the Hallet Cove Condervation Park which is a geologist's dream featuring formations from an ice age 280 million years ago. best photography time is late afternoon when the western sun strikes the formations.

“Views to die for”
Reviewed January 1, 2013

A lovely walk but beware if you are not accustomed to climbing stairs. They will leave you sore for days.
