The Milford Sounds Foreshore Walk is perfect while you’re waiting for your cruise. Or maybe you have come off the boat and aren’t quite ready to leave the beauty of the Sound quite yet. This walk takes you through beech forest. But most stunning are the views of Mitre Peak and the surrounding mountains on the water as you walk along the sandy foreshore of Milford Sound.
While the walk is short, it is easy to lose track of time. After all, it is not for nothing that RudyYard Kipling deemed Milford Sound the 8th Wonder of the World. Loop your way around the shore to take in the Sound from as many angles as possible.
Often missed as most people remain on the main path, there is a short walk that branches off from the car park where you will find a viewpoint. This viewpoint is slightly elevated and so ofFees views of Milford Sound from a (comparative) vantage point from the rest of the walk.
Milford Sound is known as one of the rainiest places in the world, but it is also notoriously known for its sandflies. So don’t forget your insect repellent!
