Nice place for a picnic, a dip in the sea as well as a kayak ride with the tidal flow. For kayaking check the tide times.

When staying (from the UK) with daughter and family in Auckland, we nearly always come to Wenderholm. Why?- there's a great beach, beautiful bay, imposing cliffs, rocks, shells, extensive grassy areas, toilets, changing rooms, barbecues, etc. And when we've been there, sunshine!
