This walk is one of my favourites!
Head to Bethells Beach and park just after you cross the bridge. At the very beginning there is a broken bridge but don't let that put you off. Take your shoes off and cross the stream, it only goes up to your knees so it isn't too deep.
The track enjoys spectacular views of the coast line down to the entrance of the Manukau Harbour and towards Muriwai. I walked to the top of the ridgeline which takes about an hour and then I turned around. You could walk all the way to Muriwai but walking it return would make it an all day walk. Bethells Beach cafe is back in action - so treat yourself after your walk, or bring a picnic and enjoy the sun.
We are so lucky to have this walk on our door step. Make sure you put this walk on your MUST DO list over the summer holidays!
