Coromandel Coastal Walkway Tour Overview
Experience the Coromandel Coastal Walkway. This dual use track has been graded 'moderate' by the Department of Conservation, and follows an old bridle path above the coast. Leaving at 8.15 am from our base at 105 Wharf Road or your accommodation, in Coromandel town, we will drive you around the Peninsula via Kennedy Bay, Tuateawa and Waikawau.
The views are magnificent. We will stop to take photos whenever you ask. We will also give you an informative commentary on the history, geology and ecology of the area, plus Maori legends and some local gossip! Morning Tea break is at the impressive Tangiaro Kiwi Retreat nestled in native bush, home to large numbers of protected kiwi.
From Stony Bay you being the 10km self-guided journey, either hike or bike, over the Coromandel Coastal Walkway through pristine native bush, rugged coastline and farmland. Photo opportunities are endless. Allow two hours for the bike or three to four hours for the hike.
You meet your minibus for the return leg, at Fletcher Bay with refreshments, a well-earned rest, and maybe a swim in the sea.
Cyclists can continue their journey to a pre-arranged pickup along the enchanting seaside Coast Road with its pohutukawa fringed shores. We sometimes follow pods of dolphins and orca (killer whales) along the coast, just a few metres from the road! At other times of the year, the sunsets are simply divine.
Last stop is Colville, a small historic town dating back to the early 1800s. Your day concludes in Coromandel Town at approximately 5pm-6pm.
If you want to spend even more time exploring the Northern Coromandel, there is the option of taking the spectacular three day Coastal Contrasts Tour. This is a supported tour, either bring your own bike or hire a bike from Bush e Bikes.
