. . . but carry a warm jacket - the wind picks up instantly.

Spoil yourself with a unexpected coffee in the far carpark, :)

The track/walk up to the seal lookout was well maintained and quite easy. Unfortunately when we visited there wasn't much seal action. We spent most of our time at the beach and it was shocking to us that we were the only ones down there!

A must see. Beautiful area and the beach is fantastic and deserted! Plenty of walks with lots of information.

In March we saw a lot of seals and enjoyed the short walk and the surrounding landscape. If in the area, it is definitely worth the stop to see the seals in their natural habitat and to take in the views of the bay.

This is a lovely walk along the coastline, on a well maintained track. Stunning scenery, plenty of seals. Great beach at Tauranga Bay end with the amazing Bay house restaurant for a coffee or meal.
