I live in tauranga for the last 2 years and never did this walk - today it was the first time and I really enjoyed it. Perfect length, great for dogs and probably even better at high tide! We definitely will be back 😊

This is a beautiful walk so close to the city of tauranga. Has great board walks and great paths. Perfect for a bit of exercise or to see some scenery. We love going for family bike rides. Is mostly flat ground.
