New Plymouth is a coastal city with a population that loves the outdoors, probably due to the vast numer of outdoor activities avaliable including skiing, fishing, surfing, white water rafting, bush walking and cycling just to name a few.
One of the great things about New Plymouth is the Coastal Walkway. It is a foreshore walkway that grows a few more km each year and follows the coastline for about 7km at the moment.
There has just been a new bridge established allowing the walkway to continue and it really is something.
Designed to represent the waves that crash on the shore it is positioned to capture the stunning views of Mt Taranaki when viewed from the northern end.

day we visited we could not even see the mountain due to cloud.
