My family and I love our short walks through Alice Eaves, which is a tranquil haven away from the increasingly busy surrounds of Silverdale and Orewa. Although not a huge reserve, once you get deeper in it's fairly easy to imagine you're in the heart...More

Being locals we love doing different walks. Over the years there has been a lot of work done on the walk ways. A lovely easy walk with some stairs up or down depending on which way you go. So nice to have the amazing beaches...More
