Manawatu Walking Festival is held every year in Palmerston North. Foxton to Himatangi is one of several tracks in the festival and also one of the easiest tracks. The track is very flat because we just need to walk from one beach to another, from Foxton Beach to Himatangi Beach (the event organizer will provide transport from and to Palmy). The distance is around 9km so we need around 2-2.5 hours to finish the track (credit to eventfinda).
I joined the event on February 28th, 2014 with my friends: Ava and Monie. The view was good and we also saw some seabirds. However, the wind was quite strong at that time and the weather was a bit chilly though it was still summertime. For details and to look at other tracks you can check the mwf website.
