- Walking: Easy
- Cycling: Easy
Time: 1 hour walk one way
Parking: Bellerive Beach Park, Wentworth Park playground off Correa Street, and Howrah Community Centre
Dogs: On lead (check signage for restrictions for dogs on beaches)
This family-friendly track is particularly well suited to cycling as it has long sections of level concrete pathway. It starts from Bellerive Beach Park and follows the coast behind the dunes. There are good views of Howrah Beach from Second Bluff but take care on the gravel sections between Second Bluff and Howrah Beach. Walkers may prefer to walk along Bellerive Beach and rejoin the track at Second Bluff where steps lead up from the beach. Wentworth Park makes a good alternative start/end point for families.
Warning: There is a steep gravel section between Howrah Beach and Second Bluff which may be slippery or too steep for wheelchairs and novice bike riders. There are restrictions for dogs on beaches – see signage on the path.
