Hike or bike The Coromandel Coastal Walkway


Explore the northern tip of the Coromandel Peninsula on foot or mountain bike along the spectacular Coromandel Coastal Walkway. 

The 20km, seven-hour return route, which should take the best part of a day, will take you between Stony and Fletcher bays. 

You can choose to return via the same easy grade walking trail, or pick the steeper Coromandel mountain bike track across farmland. 

Experience dramatic views across Mount Moehau, the Coromandel Ranges and the Hauraki Gulf, featuring regenerating bush, coastal forest and secluded sandy beaches.  

If you want to stay longer, there are DOC campsites bookending the trail at Fletcher and Stony Bay.
