This loop takes 30 minutes, following a ridge to a pa site.
Harataonga Bay is on the east coast of Great Barrier Island, in 2007 it was transformed into a busy production village and film set for the movie Castaway. The site is now completely restored and visitors to Harataonga can once again enjoy the peaceful charm of Harataonga Bay.
This track is a short diversion from the Harataonga Coastal Walkway. Leave the main ridge north of Harataonga to climb the coastal ridge that follows south to a pa site. The track drops down to the Harataonga Stream and campground and it has beautiful sea and coastal views.
