  • Very rocky roads take your time on the way up through the village drive carefully to the parking area. There is a steep stair climb up to the top but well worth it.
  • Fantastic place to visit. Accommodation hard to get. I was in a camper van with limited parking areas. Worth the drive there for sunset and sunrise pictures. Can be very cold and windy. Definitely will return.
  • Beautiful beach to stay at for a while with awesome views.
  • Great views. Hard climb and if busy a bit of waiting and feel bad holding others up if not fit.
  • Amazing part of New Zealand.
