The Point Cartwright Coastal Walkway has been a popular venue for outdoor weddings. It’s also an excellent destination for a host of outdoor activities such as rock fishing, picnics, and rockpool exploration, especially for kids. The best way to take in all the sights here is by going on the whole walk, which can begin at either the reserve carpark or La Balsa Park. You’ll also get to see views of the surf, and there are numerous seats to rest or enjoy a coffee break as you do so.
For visitors eager to do a longer walk, you can head south which takes you to the beach and Pacific Boulevard. The walkway is dog-friendly, too, so feel free to bring your pets along but do keep them on a leash. There is a special place nearby, called the Beacon Lighthouse Reserve, which is also worth visiting. It features several paved pathways, as well as picnic spots underneath trees, and a dog-friendly beach that’s perfect for taking the whole family to chill out and swim on a warm day.
The Point Cartwright Coastal Walkway is an excellent choice for a fun day outdoors.
