The walk from the city crosses from high cliffs and provides a spectacular view as you descend in a glass lift to the beach and wharf level below. Green lawns, palm trees and a sandy beach beside the wave pool are encircled by the two wharves.

For those who would rather drive, there is limited parking on Stokes Hill wharf and more parking around the shore area and a multilevel car park on Kitchener Drive, which runs along the cliff base.

The wharf itself has restaurants, take away food, a licenced bar and bottle shop a small museum.

It is a popular place to spend the evening, to have a meal, do some fishing or just watch the boats as you listen to the entertainment which is usually provided during the busy dry season.
