Breathtaking! Must visit tourist hot spot, best seen on a clear / partly cloudy day. Short walk down the cliff is opportunity to see sea smoothed rocks and touch upon the Pacific with your toes. There are a few short and long walks along the coast and up the hill too, depending on time, make a decison to do at least one.
The southern most point in south island accessible to public vehicles. The southern end/start points of SH1, opposite of Cape Reinga. The view is breathtaking especially when the sky is clear and not rainy. A good spot to take your tourist photos; and the obligatory photo at or around the mileage signpost.
