The easiest and most popular of the Great Walks, there are no peaks, climbs or high passes to cross on this hike. The months of February and April are slightly quieter than the busiest periods, yet still offer an ideal temperature to be on the coast.

Simply gorgeous! every beach is a dream and the camping is pretty good in most places. Kayaked part of it and hiked out the rest (towards takaka). Lots of tidal estuary crossings.

Most of this hike is very flat and is complemented by stunning views of the ocean. It can be both hiked or kayaked. It is well-traveled but not congested. Also, you can take a ferry back from certain points along the trail back to the start if you don't want to complete the whole trail.

Did part on a kayak, hiked a bit too. One of my favorites I've done.
