Overview

Experience the coastline of Dunedin on foot with a half day Lovers Leap Coastal Walk. Dunedin is the oldest city in New Zealand, teeming with history as well as unique wildlife and breathtaking natural beauty. Make the most of your Dunedin shore excursion and admire the most stunning views of the Otago Peninsula on this guided coastal walk. Rolling sand dunes, expansive seaside vistas, and rare wildlife encounters along the beach await you on this tour.

Remote Reserve & Lover’s Leap

Before journeying by foot, we first leave Dunedin and take the scenic coastal road as we make our way to Sandymount Recreation Reserve set within the remote hills of the Otago Peninsula.

Start stretching your legs as you walk through farmland dotted with windswept trees. Your destination is a lookout point looking down at ‘Lovers Leap,’ an arched crossing made of natural rock bridge carved out over the millennia by the pounding waves. Lovers Leap links the area’s wild coastal cliffs to a stunning hanging valley.

Beach Hut Break

Continuing on through the remaining tract of native vegetation, the one hour walking tour then descends Otago’s largest sand dune and makes its way to our privately owned beach hut.

Here in our private hut we serve you tea and Cadbury’s chocolate as you look out to a spectacular beach. Expect delightful encounters with rare wildlife such as the New Zealand sea lions and fur seals, and occasionally the magnificent yellow-eyed penguins.

Stroll along the beach and get to know more about New Zealand’s conservation efforts and techniques to keep these rare native species thriving. At the end of your guided Dunedin walk, come face to face with gigantic basalt rock formations sculpted by ferocious waves and an ever-shifting dune environment.

High Road Return

Board your minibus for the trip back to the city, taking the high road to enjoy the wonderful views while skirting the Harbourside Road on your return journey to Port Chalmers.
