With nine kilometres of sweeping white sand, this is one of the safest surf beaches in Aotearoa New Zealand. Relax under your umbrella and enjoy the sunshine or get more adventurous with boogie boarding, kayaking or kite boarding.
For boaties, fishermen, swimmers, kayakers and picnickers, the combination of beach and harbour in close proximity provides a fantastic playground. 'The Beach' as locals call it, also has a bustling shopping centre, excellent restaurants and a whole range of accommodation from four campgrounds to motels, B&Bs and luxury lodges, all within easy distance.
