Always good to be there! Fresh Air, amazing clear pacific ocean, Pohutokawas wherever you got. Pest free habitat provides a safe home for threatened native wildlife. Alos good for a surf and swim after finishing the walk.

This would have to be one of the best places that we have hiked and swum in. There are a variety of walks for different levels of fitness. All the walks were well groomed and looked after. A definite must to visit.

The road is sealed but there is no place to launch a boat, the nearest public launch is Baddley's and Campbell's beaches or Omaha.
