The Lunar Park consists of two boulders on the beach below Blacknor Central - The Solar and Lunar Boulders. The routes are of similar difficulty and style to those on the nearby Diamond Slabs and Triple Slabs. The central lines are slightly tidal and all routes finish at bolt-belays. Guidebook page 96.
