The award-winning Coastal Walkway is a thirteen kilometre path that forms an expansive sea-edge promenade stretching along the stunning west coast. Ideal for walking, running, cycling or skating, or simply enjoying the view of the dramatic west coast, the walkway runs from Hickford Park in Bell Block to Port Taranaki, with numerous pedestrian access points dotted along the way.

Our guide will collect you from your New Plymouth hotel and we will begin our morning at the beginning of the Coastal Walkway at Port Taranaki.

We begin our ride at the Port and head towards Kawaroa Park Playground and the Todd Energy Aquatic Centre, follow the winding path as it leads towards the central section of the walkway where we will see New Plymouth’s iconic Len Lye Wind Wand, a number of interesting stone carvings and other pieces of public art – here we can stop off to enjoy a coffee at one of the fabulous central cafes. This section of the walkway is also home to the award-winning and innovative heritage and information centre Puke Ariki and the Govett-Brewster Art Gallery.

Heading further north we head along the coast and pass popular surf beaches East End and Fitzroy, it is not unusual to find surfers, windsurfers and kite surfers enjoying our legendary coast line and it is always interesting watching the ever-changing sea.

Beyond Fitzroy we make our way to Waiwhakaiho and Te Rewa Rewa Bridge, an 83m long architecturally designed crossing which frames Mt. Taranaki. This bridge is reminiscent of a wave or a whales ribs and is a popular spot for photographers.

From here we hug the coastline and cycle alongside the New Plymouth Golf Club towards the Waipu Lagoons, as we near the end of the walkway we meander through picturesque farmland until we reach Hickford Park to rest and refuel before returning to Port Taranaki.

Our guide will give you insights for different points of significance and will be there with you from beginning to end. This is a 26km ride and a reasonable level of fitness is required to complete it in full. You will be dropped off at your accommodation upon completion of the trip.

Please note the name of your accommodation provider during booking. You will be contacted before the booking to confirm tours details. We would suggest that you bring water with you and snack food to keep up your energy levels.
