IN A NUTSHELL
Up to it? This is a straightforward beach walk, easily accomplished by any moderately healthy hiker. If you’re pushed for time you can complete it in five nights/six days by missing out a stay at Serendipity, but this involves one long day of 22km between Mazeppa and Wavecrest, so I’d thoroughly recommend spending six nights on the trail. There’s also a three-night Mini Meander starting at Wavecrest.
When to go The trail can be walked year-round, except during the Christmas and Easter holiday seasons when the hotels are fully booked. This section of the coast has a mild, humid climate, with most rain during the summer months.
Winters are cool and pleasant for hiking.
