The best in New Zealand! If you love the fresh salt air you'll be in heaven when you walk this walkway. Ever since it was first built it just keeps getting better and better! Not to be missed whatever the weather!

There is no bad time to walk down this walkway but we happen to go at sunset. It was just stunning with the orange glow to the north/west. You dont need to be fit or particulary able to enjoy this lovely walk.
