Of course your break isn’t just sitting back with some of the best food and drink you’ll find.  There’s plenty to see on the Gourmet Coast too.  Most of the food you’ll eat here comes with a stunning view of the ocean, mountains, farms or forest.  But if you need to stretch your legs, there are easy walking trails along clifftops and through forests, pristine and secluded beaches down any side road, historic buildings, sea pools and coastal villages to explore. 

On your own or with friends or family, there’s plenty to do on water and on land – whale watching, fishing charters, kayaking, surfing, mountain biking, markets, festivals and events, art browsing, and classes to make your own culinary delights. So take your time, pack a picnic and enjoy some easy adventure.  We’ve got all the beauty you can taste.
