A fantastic place to walk around and look at scenery. There are very good walk trails and the waves are amazing.

Great place to sight see and only a Short walk from the city centre. Has multiple waking tracks to use. Lots of native birds and plants to see as well as art sculptures. Cafe closed which was disappointing due to renovations.

Travelled here on a Saturday morning. Walked around the island and really enjoyed the views and the fresh air. It took about an hour for a leisurely stroll. It was reasonably quiet early morning but it was getting busy as we left.

It was so disappointing to see the beautiful island defaced by the sculptures that have been placed around the walking tracks. They need to be replaced with culturally significant and informative prices. The views were good though.

Well worth a visit - stunning natural scenery - good walking paths. Hospitality facilities disappointing. The Government needs to invest more in this superb natural and strategic asset.

I'm afraid not - dogs and cats are prohibited - there are even spot fines for anyone who misses/ignores the signs. Walk out to the Bluff instead just along the coast a bit at Encounter Bay
