Long Bay Coastal Track in Long Bay Regional Park starts from very end of the famous Long Bay Beach park until Okura River. Recommend walk Nature Trail first which take you through the beautiful birds paradise wetland and native bush. Out of this short Nature Trail, continue the Coastal Track to Granny’s Bay and then Pohutakawa Bay. When you reach the end of Coastal Track on Okura River beach, make a return, go back the same way or if you are 100% sure you understand and know the low tide and high tide time, you may go further than this point to discover more.
Most of Coastal Track were rebuilt friendly for family and bike, and no more muddy again. The new track, 100 Acre Track, starts from Granny’s Bay and wind back a round loop to the hill and join back to the Coastal Tack again.
Caution: Only experienced tramper may try to walk the coast route while make 100% sure you understand and know the low tide and high tide time.

The “Total Time” is my time in February which includes photo shooting time. That day was fine and the track was good. If you slow down to average 3.0 km/h plus 30 min stop then the total time will be around 3:30 hrs.
