It’s not a challenging walk but great for the views. I would avoid the path and would follow the beach route and then cut off by the lifeboat station. Enjoy the views of the rock area opposite, it’s best doing it pre low tide for...More

By parking near Hawkers Cove we had a great walk to Stepper point and then via Pepper Hole. Great views across next headland. Not that much ascent involved but outstanding views.
