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.

We had a day in new Plymouth and hiring out bikes and doing the coastal walk was definitely worth while. Great views, with the bridge and the coast itself plus a quick cycle around the velodrome was good exercise.

The coastal walkway is just stunning. Go on a bike ride from Port Taranaki out to the Bell Block velodrome. Stop at the many cafés along the way for a coffee and have a French patisserie - delicious! Enjoy the views on the way

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.
