Very easy hike. Nice restaurant at a resort place at the end. The trail keeps going for another 5k. You can take paths down to secluded areas. Clean, no garbage at all.

The boardwalk has been done really well. It is lit at night and good for prams. It is a scenic path along the coast, and well worth walking.

Although a rather easy way to see the coast, it does lead to the far more interesting and natural hanging valleys walk!

Staying right by one end I went for my morning run along the boardwalk. Great condition, plenty of space and conveniently 600m long.

Great walk with wonderful views. Wish it was longer, as it only took 20 minutes. You can be more adventurous than we were and climb down the sandstone cliffs.
