This coastal walkway is a gravel track most of the way. It can be ridden one way or as a return trip. The views are stunning, and shade limited so bring your togs.
A short detour will take you to the Bougainville memorial. If riding from South to North the trail finishes at the iconic Whananaki foot bridge, the longest in the southern hemisphere. From here you can cross to the local store and return by road or back the way you came. More information can be found at https://3xplorenz.com/2016/09/27/trail-review-sandy-bay-walkway/
