Port Macquarie-Hastings Council has adopted the Coastal Walk Master Plan.
The nine kilometre scenic trail links Westport Park to the Tacking Point Lighthouse.
Councillors are keen to start works on some areas of concern identified through the draft stage of the exhibition.
The two main concerns included, the difficult access to the northern end of Shelly Beach and nudity on Miners Beach.
Feedback from the draft also included prioritised improvements such as water bubblers, wider paths, improved signage, footpaths along Pacific Drive and more shade.
There are funds available, according to the report tabled at the December meeting, for the identified issues to be remedied.
"Funds are available this financial year for the Coastal Walk: $157,000 for general coastal walk upgrades; $120,000 for the Flagstaff Hill Reserve walkway renewal and $375,000 allocated to the Westport Park river wall and pathway, the report noted.
"Council has also been shortlisted for a grant from the regional growth environment and tourism fund for $750,000 (Town Beach to Oxley Beach).
"Council has also applied for a $125,000 grant for installation of wayfinding signage along the walk."
Trip Advisor ranks the Coastal Walk as number one out of 63 activities for visitors to do in Port Macquarie and a 2015 survey found that one third of visitors - some 500,000 - enjoy the walk each year.
