About the path

Very easy promenade along the Onetangi beachfront. Nice on a bike as well, as it is flat and quiet. Enjoy the largest accessible beach on the island and its beachside cafes.

Onetangi has a collection of architectural highlights from classic baches to stunning modern masterpieces. You can amble along the road or dip down at one of the easy ramps or steps to the beach and try the water. Easy, roadside walking on footpath, roadside or grass. At low tide the beach is huge and easy walking. One of Waiheke’s easiest and most rewarding walks. Good for buggies and bikes. Check the signs for dog off-leash times.

Parking available at most beach access points, with overflow parking along Third and Fourth Avenues.

Start your or ride at any point along the beachfront and make sure you take in the entire beach. The far ends are the best bits with interesting streams and rock formations. There is a neat little detour at the eastern end that takes you around Le Roy Road, a desirable quiet pocket just set back from the beach.

Easy walking on the beach or the Onetangi Strand.
