The most spectacular coastline in the region, with its caverns, islands, sand dunes and long stretch of beach
Access is at the end of Wharariki Road. From the car park to the beach, it takes 20 minutes over farm paddocks and through a section of coastal forest. At low tide you can walk along Wharariki Beach returning to the car park via Green Hills Track. Keep at least 20 metres away from seals. No pets. Seemingly harmless acts, such as leaving a gate open or taking a pet for a walk, can have drastic consequences for farm management. Follow the rules on the DOC website (link below) when visiting the farm. This walk is 40 minutes return, and is approximately 2 km. There are other more rugged walks available for those with high level backcountry skills and experience.
