Duration of the walk

5 hours

What to expect on this walk

For two hours before and after low tide, you can access the entire route along the foreshore.

Check the tides before you venture out and take care outside of these times, especially at the narrower 'pinch points' (marked on the map by a pink dotted line). See the Waikōwhai Walkway brochure.

Low tide routes are muddy and slippery, so wear good walking shoes and consider taking a walking pole.
