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.

The Coastal walway, of which this REwaRewa Bridge is part, is a great walk with a lot of variety in the scennery as you travel along. Shared with bikes, so you can ride or walk.

Great place to go for a walk in the morning, afternoon and evening(wouldn't recommend going there late at night). The sound of the ocean is very calming on a rough day.

Great facility and good attraction. Good for cycle and walk/run. Extends along a significant length of coast and gives a good perspective

Very many people on bikes, so if your dog can walk a straight line then o.k. If not, then carnage will ensue.
