1. Walk the Cable Bay Walkway
The Cable Bay walkway extends from the historically significant shingle beach of Cable Bay to the coastal Glenduan township and is approximately a 3.5 hour walk one way. The starting point is entirely up to you - both ends of the track require a bit of a scramble at the beginning, but the rewards are sure worth it! From Cable Bay, the track crosses undulating farmland with a steep ascent to the top of the hill. Walkers are treated to 360-degree views over the sheltered and rocky Cable Bay inlet, the Horoirangi Marine Reserve, the Tasman Bay seascape and lush native forest. Quite possibly one of the region’s most iconic walking tracks, the Cable Bay Walkway offers the ultimate combination of coastal scenery, rolling pastures and native bush – a true insight to New Zealand’s unique landscapes. Top tip: A sunset stroll here is the experience of a lifetime!
