About the path

A stunning coastal route with secluded rocky coves, great views, secret picnic spots and one of Waiheke’s longest staircases. A great walk for a lazy ramble with lots of beaches and rock pools to explore.

Good parking is available at Little Oneroa Beach with its popular playground, safe swimming, barbecues, toilets, shop and food outlets. There is plenty to explore for the whole family.

Starting at Little Oneroa Beach, there’s a track to your right along the coast, part of the Te Ara Hura network. Head up the hill (steps) and keep left, past the first picnic table, then down to a lovely cove (there is another picnic table on a small hill there).

From the beach keep left again and head up to Newton Road and cross the road to the track and the stairs that go all the way down to Fisherman’s Rock. You can roam around the rocks at low tide, right around the headland, but do take care as the rocks are jagged.

Come back the way you came and enjoy the views back across to Oneroa.

Some steep sections, but very rewarding. Can get a little muddy in winter.

A there and back route. Very nice and achievable coastal route, with spectacular views. The walk is not buggy or wheelchair friendly.
