Runs along the front of the park!
The award-winning Coastal Walkway is a seaside path that stretches from Port Taranaki (6 km away) across the front of Fitzroy Beach Holiday Park and through to Taranaki Cycle Park in Bell Block (5 km away). The walkway is ideal for walking, running, cycling, scooting, or skating. Road user rules apply so cyclists must wear helmets. Dogs are allowed on the walkway but must be on a leash.
