New Plymouth Coastal Walkway
Paved trail along the coast (3hrs)
Definitely more of a walk than a hike, the award-winning Coastal Walkway is a 13.2km path that forms an expansive sea-edge promenade stretching from Pioneer Park at Port Taranaki all the way to the eastern side of Bell Block Beach.
Fully paved, it is excellent for walking, running, cycling, skateboarding or skating and chances are, you’ll meet up with someone doing each of these activities along the way. Gorgeous on a good day.
