Business Type: Must See in Taranaki


Make a day of it on this amazing coastal walk (tide-dependent , so leave on an outgoing tide!) that leads through private farmland, beautiful forest and along the spectacular Taranaki coastline.

Address: Pukearuhe Road, Taranaki, New Zealand New Plymouth,Taranaki


The walk is 14km and 5hrs one way, so you might want to get a driver to meet you at the other side! If you want a shorter walk, before you head down to the Wai Pingao Stream from the cliff ridge, you can divert from the track and follow the stream out to the coast, then walk south back along the beach (6.5km, 4hrs).

The walk starts at Pukearuhe boat ramp at the end of Pukearuhe Road – make sure you plan to reach Pukearuhe no later than two hours after low tide.
