“Idyllic , scenic and yet so peaceful”
Reviewed 11 December 2013

Lighthouses always have an appeal and this is no exception. Didn't see the sea lions but loved the scenic view all the same. Beautiful and scenic and even the water looked enticing until somebody mentioned it was probably about 14 degrees.

“Look for the sea lions on the beach”
Reviewed 3 November 2013

A nice 15-20 minute walk from the car gets you up close to the lighthouse and down on the beach below. On the beach you will likely see a few sea lions napping on the sand. Good place to wander around and grab a few photo should be on your list if you are down in the southland area.

“Scenic Spot”
Reviewed 21 July 2013

We enjoyed our visit to the Waipapa Point Lighthouse with the lazy seals sleeping on the side of the walkway. There was lots of large kelp on the beach as the weather had been stormy the days prior. A definite must when travelling through the Catlins.
