Due to illegal logging in the national park the gate from the main road into the national park is usually locked. You will need to contact the MNRE to obtain the key, though the road leading to the car park is very rough and should only be attempted with a 4WD, otherwise it is only about a 30min walk to the car park from the main road.
From the Car Park the first view point takes a 3 minute walk, where you can see the magnificent waves crashing against the cliff. The walk then takes you through the magnificent Pandanus forest.
While in the Pandanus forest, you can see two small islands with amazing shape. At the end of the Coastal walk lies a huge lava field where you can see Nu'usafe'e, Nu'utele and the Aleipata Islands.
The Coastal Walk is relatively an easy walk, about one hour for a regular hiker. However, the trail is on rough lava rocks and we recomment that you walk carefully. Please wear sturdy walking shoes.
