Trip Advisor review:
" I have walked it in both a sunny warm winter day and in a windy winter rainy storm. I think I preferred the storm!"
This is the CORRECT way to watch waves -- please stay off the rocks! Enormous breakers pound the coast, sometimes sending waves right into the trees, as has recently happened this winter.
What to bring
- Pack to dress in layers. During the winter, it is most often warm, but can become colder when the skies are clear. Carry a warm layer like a fleece jacket plus a wind/rain shell such as a poncho or rain slicker.
- A water bottle and a day pack to keep your camera and binoculars dry is a good idea.
- STURDY shoes not afraid of puddles! Locals favour "gumboots". The gravel trail stays remarkably dry under foot but in a heavy rain you will prefer dry feet.
- A rain slicker is practical, umbrellas are often toys for the wind! Some resorts lend rain gear.
