  • We decided to walk from the end of the trail of dragon’s back to big wave bay. I wouldn’t recommend doing this since there isn’t a pedestrian path so you have to walk directly on the road which isn’t very safe (there are vehicles going by pretty frequently and the drive fast). I would recommend taking the number 9 bus instead which is quick and painless (we did this for the return journey and were glad we did). Big wave bay is beautiful even on a dreary january afternoon. There were a bunch of surfers riding the waves even though it was pretty cool outside. There are a few shops around the beach so we sat nearby with a beer enjoying the sea air. There is also a trail going up at the other side of the beach which you can hike if you’re looking for a beautiful view of the bay.
  • Great beach. A few months after the typhoon, everything is back to normal. All is well
