Hiking Trail
Enjoy a gentle stroll along Kaikoura Peninsula Walkway for ocean views and wildlife sightings. Walkers can choose from a wide range of tracks traversing the peninsula's clifftop, ranging from just 200 m (0.1 mi) to 3.9 km (2.4 mi). Even the five-minute walk from the parking lot to the viewing platform rewards with views of the sea and mountains. Each trail features information boards and benches, providing pleasant resting spots. Keep your eye out for seals from the colony that lives just off the peninsula; bear in mind, however, that though they may appear friendly, they can be very protective of their young and should not be approached.
