This spectacular coastline is not too far from the city-centre. In fact, Owhiro Bay is just a short 30-minute bus ride from the city (20 minutes if you drive). On this coast, you’ll discover the famous Red Rocks Reserve, a fur seal colony and a marine reserve. You’ll also pass by historic baches (small, simple beach houses) built in the early 1900’s along the track. The views here are simply breathtaking so make sure you set aside half a day to explore this rugged coastline. To learn more about this incredible walk, head over to the New Zealand Tourism website.
