Overview

Coastal route from Makara Beach to Opau Bay.

Grade

Intermediate

Access

Foot

Description

This completes the loop from the gun emplacements and Opau Bay back to Makara Beach, or provides a nice coastal walk if you don't feel like walking uphills. The track follows the coastline and is rocky and uneven - it is tough going along the pebbly shoreline so although the distance isn't great it takes a while (allow 1.5 hours, or 3 hours if you do the round trip with the gun emplacements). At high tide going around the headlands requires a little rock climbing - it isn't dangerous, but take care.
