Owner description: 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.

Such a lovely way to spend 30 minutes to a couple of hours. Unique, easy walkway that shows the best of Taranaki. Changing scenery along the way including quirky art, sculptures as well as the natural beauty of sand, sea, surf and the mountain (if you are walking in that direction)

Rain or shine I would definitely recommend this walkway. It is wide enough for families, cyclists, skateboarders and dog walkers alike. We only walked part of it and just wished we had had enough time to enjoy the whole path.

No better way to spend a sunny day than on the walkway. From Bell Block through to the port, you can walk or bike. What an assets for Taranaki.

Whether you walk all of it, part of it, or just go for coffee - you MUST do the Coastal Walkway.
Get a bike, or a skateboard or some blades....
Don't wait for perfect weather - the sea is fabulous to stroll next to when smooth or rough.

The walkway starts at the port and continues for about 12km to Bell Block. However, anyone can start at any part as numerous entrances are available. There is a dividing line for pedestrians and walkers but this is not always observed. Amazing scenery and the closeness to the sea makes it enjoyable for all ages. Mobility scooters are available but need to be booked in advance. Several places are available for snacks and drinks. A wonderful asset for the city.
