Such stunning scenery, overlooking the ocean, we watched Manta rays and Dolphins playing in the sea. The walk itself was short probably only 2K which was on a boardwalk, it's a circular route so easy to navigate.Highly recommended and picture perfect.

We did this walk on a beautiful sunny day & also on a cloudy, blustery day. Seems like a totally different walk with the different weather & but both were beautiful. We saw dolphins, stingrays, turtles & kangaroos
