Headed in to town along the great coastal walkway. Just after getting on ran into a delightfully happy English tourist who was very chatty, then ran into a couple who are friends of ours. They told me I should be wearing an arm band. 100...More

Nice spot to park up the car and take a stroll up the coast. This stretch seems to be a little busier than other parts of the coastal walkways. Lots of good views just watch out for the cyclists.

Breathtaking. Whether walking or biking. Don't leave New Plymouth without a taste of this walkway. I went here after going to the food truck festival at the park across the road.

This wide concert pathway shared by walkers, bikes, scooters skaters is a marvellous place to soak up the beautiful coast scenery and get some fresh sea air into one's lungs. It goes for miles but you can walk as little or as much of it...More

Loved this walk, did it several times while staying there. A lovely wide track which I did from the Port to Fitzroy Beach. Beautiful views along the way.
