The Kaikoura Peninsula walk kicks off with seals right off the bat. But it's the classic New Zealand lookout that is the jewel in the crown. It takes your breath away - as the reviews show.
Many people leave it there (5 mins walk to lookout), but if you have time, the extended walk is a worthy and easy going coastal jaunt. More seals than you can poke a stick at. Enjoy!

This coastal walk is really nice, lots of seals and birds.
Tip : don't make a circular walk from the city, as advised in the i-site. You can park either in south bay, either near point Kean. From there, can bee nice to first walk on the cliffs, to enjoy the stunning view, then come back near the shore, to approach the seals : Check first at the i-site for the tide and weather info.

The walk around the peninsula of Kaikoura is wonderful, with nice views of the mountains and beaches. You can see sea lions and birds - really awesome.

Nice to see seals in their own environment, great view around Kaikoura - such a nice walk!
Awesome walk, follow the beach. Be aware of the tides. Saw some seals, at least 20.
Easy walk with spectacular views and amazing animals.
The walk atop the cliff are a sight to behold. It is very well maintained and nice.
Go there to see many seals and birds. The place is quite packed but worth the trip.
Nice spot for walking but a bit short.
Great walk, well sign posted with lots of information provided en route as to significance of buildings, structures etc. Good wildlife to see en route.
We saw seals and had a wonderful walk on the peninsula. We loved it so much we stayed and did the walk twice.
A fairly easy, well maintained walkway leads you through an open landscape with many wide views of the sea and great aerial views of seals on the rocks beneath.
