Trails:

Start out from Ambury Park, head out towards the coast, then east. Follow your nose along the trail. When you come to the causeway there are two options:

  1. Head out along the causeway, you can get half way around the island at the end
  2. Take a left onto the road, for a few 100 metres, look out for the trail that continues on the right. Follow the trail all the way to the beach, great spot for a picnic, or go for a wander over to the impressive stonefields.

Then return the same way.
