Taylors Mistake to Boulder Bay
view - 5:25

Taylor's Mistake is a sheltered cove, most popular with surfers, is so named because Captain Taylor famously mistook it for Lyttelton Harbour. Brightly coloured rustic Kiwi baches line the coastline in this area. Taylor's Mistake is an excellent, safeĀ swimming beach for families and is also frequented by those enjoying the many picturesque walking tracks in the area.
Beginning at Taylor's Mistake, the walkway winds around the steep edge of the headland over a number of bays and coves, offering spectacular views of the ocean and the high, open hill landscape of this volcanic peninsula. Of particular interest are the cave dwellings and rugged holiday cottages dotted along the coastline and at Boulder Bay.
