Lovely clean 1.5km stretch of golden sand. Numerous access points, most with ample parking. Bordered by many old pohutukawas. On a clear day you can see the whole of the Karikari Peinsula across Doubtless Bay.

Sums up all you would hope for when visiting a beach in New Zealand. Stunning Pohutukawa trees drape over the beach, soft sand and so much space. Even a playground to keep the kids entertained.
