Cape Foulwind Walkway

With a seal colony, a lighthouse and panoramic views of mountains and coastline, the Cape Foulwind Walkway on the rugged West Coast of the South Island, is a great walk suitable for all abilities.

Beginning at the Tauranga Bay carpark you follow the easy walking path to the fur seal breeding colony, where you can see seals at any time of year.

From the seal colony follow the track along the coastal bluffs to the Cape Foulwind lighthouse. Along the way interpretation panels give a flavour of the region’s history, with stories of early explorers and industries.
