Peninsula Walkway Hike

Peninsula Walkway Hike

Kaikoura is exceptionally well-known for its water sports and marine life. There are plenty of tour operators who will take you dolphin or whale watching, swimming with the dolphins, kayaking and even whale-watching flights! The best thing to do in Kaikoura in my opinion is to head out to the coast to walk the Peninsula Walkway, a stunning hike along the cliff-tops with views of the seals far below.

PENINSULA WALKWAY HIKE DETAILS

When: year-round

Where: Kaikoura

Difficulty: easy-intermediate

Length: 2 1/2 hours for 11km one-way loop hike starting and ending in town

Directions: from town, walk all the way along the beach to the Point Kean Viewpoint. From there, the Peninsula Walkway wanders along the grassy cliff-tops with views of white cliffs and seals lounging all around; my mouth literally fell open at the beauty. Continue to the South Bay Reserve then finish your loop back to town.

Bathrooms: yes, at the Point Kean Viewpoint and in South Bay Reserve

Public Transit: no (but no need, the walk is in town!)
