Enjoy the coastal scenery and discover the island's interesting history along the Kaiki Walk or go fishing from the jetty, or causeway (no fishing from breakwater). You may even spot a southern right whale between June and October.

Well worth a visit. One can take the horse drawn tram if one wishes, we walked across. Great way to spend a few hours walking with fantastic scenic views.

We enjoyed the walk around the island which took about 40 mins. as it was easy to get around without any obstacles. There were many photo opportunities especially with the whales showing off in the bay. There is also a coffee and gift shop, and the chance to take a ride back to the mainland on the horse drawn tram which runs along the jetty.

The walk begins up a stair way but once up there, the walk is easy. The pathway is undulating but it would be suitable for anyone provided they can walk the distance which is just under 3kms. The views from the coastal path are stunning and there is plenty of wildlife to see en route. There is nowhere to get a drink, so it's advisable to take a bottle of water as it is very exposed up there with no shade to speak of until near the end. No trip to Victor Harbor would be complete without a trip here - it is stunning.

A wonderful outing in the fresh air to Granite Island. You can walk or catch the horse drawn tram. We walked on way and caught the tram back. Had lunch at the restaurant ( it was fair ) and walked along some of the paths. Lovely views and splendid scenery. Visited the penguins as well. Children loved the outing .
