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.

We cycled this one but, had we been staying longer, would have enjoyed the walk too. The walkway is connected to other inland walks.

We stayed in New Plymouth for 2 days. Used the walkway as our mode of transportation via walking. We stayed at a holiday park right on the path and used it. Safe and close.

We spent a lot of time walking on the walkway. Each time we went we saw something different and ended up somewhere else. A lot of bikes use the walkway and most of the people walking or on bikes are extremely friendly.

Fantastic walkway/cycleway. My wife and I are in our 70's and we cycled the whole way. Plenty to see and do and a real credit to the forsight of the local council. There is a cycle velodrome near the far end of the cycleway which...More

I'm not sure, as I wasn't looking for this- but I would venture to say yes- as there were plenty of tourists on bikes- sorry this is most likely too late to matter.
