New Plymouth Coastal Walkway

Stretching for 10 km - nearly the length of the city itself - the New Plymouth coastal promenade is made for walking, cycling or skating. It is also suited to those who use mobility scooters; some are available for use for free from the Aquatic Centre, but it’s best to book ahead of time.

The walkway boasts generous views of the west coast and was designed without an edge specifically to suit the landscape. The curved sea wall offers protection from the waves, with the occasional pier to allow people to make the most of the open coast.

The New Plymouth coastal walkway starts at Hickford Park, weaving through bucolic farmland and passing the Waipu lagoons. It follows the coastline closely, beside the New Plymouth golf club, through to Te Rewa Rewa reserve.

The path crosses over the iconic Te Rewa Rewa bridge, with views through to Mt Taranaki. The bridge brings to mind a breaking wave and was named after a nearby pa site; it has won international awards for its design and engineering. The walkway then continues through to the beach and holiday park at Fitzroy, where you can surf or swim.

Coming into town, the New Plymouth coastal walkway takes in the Wind Wand, an iconic local sculpture of fibre glass. This 45 metre tall kinetic piece of art was designed by local artist Len Lye and has pride of place along the promenade. It’s hypnotic to watch as it sways in the wind, and glows red at night.

A variety of other public art pieces and carvings can also be seen along the walkway, which then carries on past the Aquatic Centre, Kawaroa Park and a playground. It finishes at the marina and Ngamotu Beach, where you can take a swim


Great value - thanks! Definitely will recommend you to my friends.
