Stunning wee bay!

This little bay is just stunning! Whether for the day, or freedom camp in a self contained vehicle - this is one of our summer staple destinations.

Lovely lovely beach
Jan 2018 • Couples
Such a nice discover!

We went up to Taipa for a long weekend and our way back decided to spend a night in Leigh;
while heading to Makatana for having dinner we have seen the sign of the bay and decided to check it,
great we did it because the place is really lovely, sand beach, warm water and all the facilities on the back (showers, large parking, even a camping site);
absolutely recommended.

This bay is really beautiful, it is even shallow enough to have a swim and it seem svery popular by locals. We grabbed some fish and chips in Leigh and ate it on the beach, watch birds dive for fish and went for a swim. It was a perfect afternoon, highly recommended.

Anyone or it will be sll over soon. Beautifull bay north of Auckland, shallow enough to swim out even on normal high tides, very quiet and peacefull during the week. Sawmill Brewery not far away as well as Matakana with a very nice farmers weekend market and some very nice winerys. Recommend Robin Ransom winery!!

Beautiful Bay
Jan 2016
This bay is usually used for divers as as it gets above head height after about 5 meters. There is a floating pontoon about 70 meters out. There is also a shallow river that runs onto the beach which is good for young children, so this beach can suit the whole family. Ice cream and coffee van on site. It also has a reef and there were quite a few fishermen down the side of the bay but no where near the swimming area.

Beautiful beach

Located an hour drive from Auckland, this is a beautiful and peaceful bay. We went there for our scuba diving certification on a Sunday morning. It was packed with beach-goers and snorkelers alike.
