Great way to stretch your legs and see the coast. We completed a whale watch tour and rather travel to town on the bus we walked. We saw lots of seals and bird life. Stopped for seafood and ice cream during the journey.

I did the cliff top walk, taking my time over a couple of hours to enjoy the stunning views. At low tide you can walk along the beach, but in places you can be so close to the seals that you unwittingly disturb them.

Walked from our B&B. Well signposted walk. Up close to seals. Great views out over the bay. Took two hours to complete the circuit.

We walked along the cliff-top to South Bay and (following instructions in a guide-book) returned along the beach. However, be warned that when the tide comes in there is little room to manoeuvre around the seals protecting their positions on the rocks and we had some scary moments! To be fair, we should have observed the warning signs on the beach!

If you have the time, you will not be disappointed - great vistas (ocean, cliffs, Kaikoura Seaward Ranges and seals). Allow 3-4 hours for the full circuit and if the tide is right, you can walk along the coast. The walk itself is not difficult, suitable for anyone with a moderate fitness level. Highly recommended. The Kaikoura i-site has a brochure with detailed explanatory notes for $2 which I found useful.
