Utterly spectacular 11km long walkway along the seafront in New Plymouth, New Zealand. Walk, ride skate or scoot from Bell Block in the north to Port Taranaki to the south taking in the stunning Te Rewa Rewa Bridge, three swimming beaches, a golf club, rolling farm land, rivers and various accessways to residential and shopping areas.

Fabulous place to walk. Lots to see and plenty of places to sit and admire the view or people watch. Can walk the whole way or just portions. So close to the city

We regularly walk our dogs (on leash) along the walkway, we love the coastal scenery, the fantastic bridge, the well maintained path & the fact that you can access it from so many different points so you can start at a new place each time...More

Great scenic walk, well maintained walkways, Te Rewa Rewa bridge is awesome and is a stunning backdrop for pictures especially if the mountain is showing itself that day. Only thing you have to be wary of is cyclists!

This is a fantastic walkway... concreted all the way along the city shoreline. Pieces of unique art scattered along the walkway - wind wand, wartime sea mine, art... Well worth taking the time to enjoy the beauty of the city and shoreline.

On the first day going to town we walked a small part of the walkway in the city. Went back on a borrowed bicycle and did it twice. Plenty of places to stop for pictures (Te Rewa Rewa bridge which I crossed 6 times!) and...More

A fantastic walk along the gorgeous New Plymouth coastline. Nice wide flat surface which is perfect for walking, biking and scootering (for the kids).

Not sure as we took our own bikes. I'm pretty sure there is somewhere - perhaps google it.

Very many people on bikes, so if your dog can walk a straight line then o.k. If not, then carnage will ensue.
