not as wonderful as all the hype! I took the aquataxi from Marahau to Barks Bay and then hiked back to Marahau. 15 miles later, I can tell you that the hike was mostly through the bush which is very thick and as such, very, very limited, to no, views of the ocean. so if you like the beauty of the bush, then you will love this coast track. if you want more views of the surrounding mountains and ocean, you will be disappointed! the hike was a combination of flat areas and some steep inclines.
