“A Jewel in Taranakis Crown ”
Reviewed March 26, 2014 via mobile

We started our walk at the Wind Wand and wandered towards East End Beach. The walkway is wide flat and easy going a mixture of boardwalk and concrete. It is a shared footpath for walkers and cyclists and was pretty busy on a Wednesday afternoon.

The day was beautiful, the sea and surf were pounding on your left and the whole city is curved out before you. Great photo ops! We walked 1.7 kms in about 30 mins and arrived at East End Reserve on the banks of the Te Henui river. There is an outdoor seasonal pop up container cafe there and we had a coffee and a cake in the sun before wandering back. Nice small walk from the city and well worth it. Made me want to hire a bike and do the rest if the 11 kms......will certainly do it another day.

“staying in Fitzroy”
Reviewed March 23, 2014

We stayed in Fitzroy after the 2014 WOMAD Fest.

The accom. Was minutes from the coastal walkway. what a great asset to New Plymouth (NP). A lovely walk into the town centre - check out the container cafe on the way! - away from the traffic and great to commune with the sea.

also good to walk the beach when the tide is out and the walk the path home.

well done the visionary who got this project built!

“A truely great walk”
Reviewed March 23, 2014

This is a magnificent facility and investment by the New Plymouth city and lots of local businesses. Such wonderful views and refreshment places and a great place to meet people. Lots of parks alongside and obviously enjoyed by old and young and everyone in between.

“Amazing Bike Route”
Reviewed March 22, 2014

We came to New Plymouth for the weekend and spend a whole day biking along the walkway. It is cycle friendly and has a range of spots to stop for lunch or an ice cream along the way.
