This circular walk passes alongside stands of mangroves, bush areas where a variety of local plants have become established and leads out to the jetty from which not only birds but fish including rays and sharks are frequently seen. The final part of the walk goes along the sea wall where passing seabirds can be viewed before going through the gardens where other species might be found. The walk is best in the mornings not just because it is cooler but also because the waters either side of the jetty is calmer, making it much easier to see into the water.
