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.

You cant beat the walkway on a nice day. Great for all ages from children on scooters, to cyclists or walkers. Great views along the coast.

Good place to walk or bike, awesome view of Mt Taranaki on a cloudless, bright, sunny day. Met a couple of friendly locals too.

We hired bikes on a fine winters day and it was fabulous. What a brilliant treatment for the foreshore. The bridge is a highlight - though trying to get a photo is tricky as it's so popular! A photo with Mt Taranaki in the background...More

Just loved the cycle from bell block into town and back. If doing it from town the extra but from the coast to bell block goes inland and is less scenic

On a good day, this is amazing! Mt.Taranaki in the background in all it's magnificence and the Tasman Sea in al it's wild grandeur. Not to be missed by anyone visiting the 'Naki
