Great experience, saw so many seals!! Great walkway around the cliffs as an easy walk or you can go further outside to walk the wet stones and sandbanks. But please follow the rules and respect the animals!!
15Oct18. We were here in 2014. What a difference since the earthquake. Last time we parked our van overhanging the wall a little and the waves splashed up over us. This time the waves didn’t get anywhere near.
On the plus side there is the old sea bed to walk on and the seals are still there but further out.
Don’t forget to go up the cliff walk at least to the first lookout.

Beautiful views of the town and of the ocean. A nice loop walk with several alternative routes, appearing to be safe in high tide also, but be careful as always. Car park available. We saw a seal resting on the walkway from the car park. Enjoy them, but keep your distance - it’s their habitat, not yours.
Good place to see seals. Nice to see them sunbathing.

Perfect place to see these wonderful creatures. They are so lazy and funny!

We saw a lot of sea lions, it is really amazing! And we did a walk of one hour with a really nice landscape.
Pure nature, you can see seal babies, you can see seals in their natural environment.
Nice stop on the road to see real nature. Seals are fun for kids and not that young.
We went to the beach and saw a lot of seals. Kaikoura is well worth a stop.
So many seals, amazing to see!
