glennj That pic brings back a few memories having lived for over a year on Matakana Island. Mind you I never did that walk but often saw others doing it when out in a boat or from shore.
It was the fishing not the tramping that attracted me to Matakana Island but there is plenty of flattish walking. I did circumnavigate the island on foot whilst there! (The ocean beach is 26km long, there are dairy farms, horticulture blocks & forestry so it's not a tiny island as many think)) There are lots of archaeological sites, huge shellfish beds & wild pigs adding to the interest of the place beyond fishing opportunities. The place has a sense of remoteness & solitude but at high tide I could get to down town Tauranga city in just 20 minutes by boat. Loved it there!
