There's an entrance and parking area off Centennial Drive, just past the Port and Paritutu Rock. Go at low tide for a spectacular walk along the cliffs. At low tide, a broad
beach of black volcanic sand strewn with interesting rocks stretches out so far that you can walk to a couple of near islands. We went recently in the late afternoon and as we reached the nearest island, a seal hopped down, waddled his way to the sea and swam away. The sun started to set, throwing spectacular color across the sand, cliffs, and sky. We had to force ourselves to turn back so we could reach the car park before it got totally dark.
