One of the best coastal walks in New Zealand. Discover beautiful beaches, quiet nature and twinkling bays.
This spectacular walk takes 7 hours (return) and offers the chance to take in the full beauty and solitude of the remote upper Coromandel Peninsula. Stony Bay and Fletchers Bay mark the start and end points of the track, and both are hidden jewels in their own right.
Passing beneath the shadow of brooding Mt Moehau, the track traverses pristine bush, farmland and coastline.
The track follows an easy gradient with a short steep section into and out of Poley Bay. From here, you will head on to farmland where the track leads to Fletcher Bay.
From Coromandel, follow Colville Road north for 31 km to Colville Bay. From there, take Port Jackson Road for 30 km to Fletcher Bay or Port Charles Road for 20 km to Stony Bay.
Need to know
Swimming at Poley Bay is hazardous because of submerged rocks.
