Driving & Riding
The Tango peninsula has some truly outstanding roads, whether you like to drive, ride, or walk, there is something for everyone. Below are some of my favorite routes that I have enjoyed time and time again over the years. The roads range from wide, coastal, sealed roads, to narrow, concrete paths that wind up mountains, and along valley floors. I am so thankful that the local government continues to maintain these little roads, because in my mind, they are a national treasure!
Route Name: Coast to Skifield
Description: Approximately 80kms of lovely coastal cruising to Ine (famous hotspot with the funeya (boatsheds)), followed by small, windy roads up to the skifield, and back down the other side to Asobi Lodge. Plan for 4 – 5 hours depending on stops.
Route Name: Amino Coast
Description: An excellent traverse across the steep hills of the Amino coastline. A couple of nice stops along the way, and plenty of opportunities to explore the rocky coast. Only 31kms in total, you can turn around and follow the coast back, or follow the route below to come back through Amino.
Route Name: Route 653 / 654 Loop
Description: If you have a large car, please do not consider this route. Routes 654 & 653 are very narrow mountain roads that are hardly used, but found in beautifully maintained condition. Not far in distance (approx 36kms), but it takes time to navigate these amazing roads. For small cars and bikes only. Oh, and adventurous people!
