A little known walk to a fantastic golden sand beach with the freakish Split Apple Rock that sits on a reef out front. The rock itself looks best at a high tide, but low tide provides greater beach space and check out the little caves at the northern end. Great little adventure for the family.

Good track leading down to the beach with views of the rock and access to caves. Carpark was however quite overcrowded.
Last saw the rock 60 years ago when the only way was by boat. Great walking track even for geriatrics like my self.

Pretty little beach with black and golden sand, we were lucky to enjoy a day with 27 degrees - it was so perfect.
Amazing spot, 15 minute walk, impressive rock that we never saw before.

Beautiful! Had to park at the top of the hill with the motorhome and walk down. Not too bad at all - had baby in backpack and five year old walked. Walking track is well maintained.
Beautiful bay with stunning rock formations. Motorhomes need to park on the road above the carpark, but it is only 100m away from the track entry.
Walk not spectacular but nice quiet beach with Split Apple Rock view. You can also swim there.

Great beach with an interesting rock formation. There's even a toilet for when nature calls which was very convenient.
Short walk, sea, possible to climb over the rocks, picnic (without table and chairs), beautiful view, some boat tours with tourists.
Nice, short walk.
It was a really nice walk with lots to see. The stairs were awesome.
Named after a rock looking like a split apple. Beautiful day, great for swimming and relaxing.
Thanks to all the good people working for the NZ Department of Conservation - for all your hard work - making NZ more beautiful, accessable and healthy! Cheers 😍
