We walked from the Lighthouse into town and back again - about 17.5-18km. It's a stunning landscape. Lots of beach walking, and stairs to climb. There are toilets along the route and a couple of water stations were you can fill up bottles etc.

This beautiful walk is amazing. I would advise anyone coming to this area to walk along this pathway and onto the beautiful headland! The views of the clear blue sea and white beaches, with parrots in the trees are amazing!
