Amazing walk, well sign posted, uneven terrain makes it challenging, saw one seal.

Long track along the coast. We have seen the Red Rocks and the seal colony - beautiful place but for some people the track might be too long for what you get.

See wild seals! Just one word for that - unforgettable. But I am wondering why there are red rocks and grey rocks?

Lovely walk along the coast. Some fat seals at the end and a great walk into the hills halfway in.

Beautiful beach, very busy, lots of 4 x 4 show offs. A great walk to a small waterfall and lovely local people!

This is a very beautiful walk close to the beach and you can see some seals if you are patient and it depends on the season.

Really cool place, I love how it is so wild. I wouldn't want the track to get any better as it would be too busy.

Easy walk (30-40 minutes one way), with impressive rock formations. Careful on hot and windy days! Wear long trousers because of the sand, which gets blown on your legs.

The walk was too long and the Sea-lions were too far away.

Easy walk on the beach, 4-5 KM and a chance to watch seals on the rocks.

Nice walk along the coast. We have never seen such huge waves before - very impressive; although we just saw 3 seals (it was not the season, May to August), we could go very close to them to take some funny pictures. :-)

Near Wellington. Nice walk along the sea, not very sandy so proper shoes are good. Walk to a seal colony.

Stunning views of the Red Rocks and the coast. You can see seals from May - November. Sturdy footwear recommended - you can also drive the track with a 4WD.
