A hike that takes all day. You hike up, down and all around the coast. The ending brings you to Bethells Beach. If you do it on the weekend, the cafe is open and you can end with a cup of coffee and a snack.

Whichever way you choose, up over the black sand dunes or along the stream, the hike is pretty short and everything is beautiful. Running down the dunes is the best part.

A big, free black sand beach filled with caves to explore! Not safe for swimming but there is a lake just 2kms away to swim at, plus giant black sand dunes to slide down.
