New Plymouth City Walks and Beaches. Safe swimming beaches and prized surf spots, Costal Walkways and Mt Taranaki.
City Walks and Beaches
There are wonderful safe swimming beaches, as well as more than 50 prized spots for surfing around the coast.
The iron sands of the beaches are testament to previous volcanic activity and on a summer day there is plenty
of heat left in them for an evening swim.
New Plymouth's Coastal Walkway
New Plymouth's award-winning 7km coastal walkway winds past sculptures, beaches, rock pools and rivers.
Mt Taranaki has more than 300 kilometres of walking tracks, ranging from 10 minute nature walks to a
three day trek around the mountain.
