Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

What a lovely hidden gem. Visited this place as the historical home has personal meaning to our family history.
Thoroughly enjoyed wandering around the home and grounds and walking around Casnell island at low tide.
Such a peaceful place sitting on the beach in front of the historical home.
Loved the huge tree on the grounds as well.

Found this little slice of paradise with crystal clear water for swimming. On arrival, we both just said "Wow"

Not to far from Snells Beach village, and down a winding road which still remains unsealed, the historic Scotts Landing opens up once at the end of the road. A beautiful beach and a well kept homestead, a lovely place to picinic and take a swim if the weather is ok. A lot of history here, its always a pleasure to "come back", lots of memories.The beautiful huge old trees provide shade in summer.

Scotts Landing is the gateway to the Mahurangi Harbour. Located on the beach front the original Scott family homestead is usually a peaceful haven with a gently sloping sheltered beach well suited for young children. 100 year old trees provide shade and the only vehicles are boats but once a year it hosts the the Mahurangi Cruising Club annual regatta prize giving and BBQ. This is reputed to be the largest one day sailing regatta in the world with over 1000 entries each year.
There is a road to Scotts Landing which provides access to a boat ramp, public toilets, Rubbish skips and the local mussel farms.

The trip out to Scott’s landing along a narrow, winding hog’s back road is beautiful with sweeping vistas across fields and water, well worth the short trip.

This place seems to be right off the beaten track. Down a winding road that seemed never to end while taking in the amazing and stunning scenery. This eels more a place for boating, canoeing, kayaking or fishing. Very peaceful. Couldn't see anywhere to eat or have coffee that's not to say there wasn't .

While staying near to the Tawharanui Penisula, we had decided to visit a few beaches recommended to us by the lady owner of the cabin we stayed in. Scott's Landing was recommended for us to visit. So we took our swimming gear and a few picnic things to amuse ourselves.
Upon setting up in a nice position under the giant trees along the beach, we decided to go into the water to swim in the water. It is a very gentle beach and not exposed to the ocean side. We found the water too murky to swim so just relaxed on the bexh to read a book.
We would recommend this beach to families as there is gentle slope to the beach, so takes a while to get deep. As its not exposed to the ocean it is very sheltered also.

At the end of long winding narrow & partly loose gravel road that branches off from Snell’s beach and Algie’s Bay main road, you will arrive at Scott’s Landing and Scott‘s Homestead [an iconic refurbished colonial heritage building originating in 1877].

In front of this historical house there is a majestic beach that you don’t see when you first arrive as it is tucked around the corner, and Casnell Island which can be visited by walking across to it at low tide [remember to come back before the tide rises!].

The beach lies in front of the Homestead, and is lined with some amazing, huge trees to rest under too. Beautiful spot for a family to spend the day, bring a picnic!

Scott's Landing is the Mahurangi's best kept secret. The perfect place for a weekend picnic. Depending on the tide swimming is safe and sheltered.

Geographically, Scott’s Landing is on the opposite side of Mahurangi West and separated by the beautiful Mahurangi River Estuary.

Parking is somewhat restricted but adds to the quiet attraction.

At the end of long winding narrow road this Scott Landing is associated with the history of Scott Homestead, an iconic old building which managed by Auckland Council now. The beautiful homestead, dating from 1877, was almost derelict when bought by the former Auckland Regional Council to form part of the new regional park, and with the work hard of volunteers, restored and handing it back to the ARC in 1995. In front of this historical house there is an island, Casnell Island which can be visited by walking on low tide, nice walk to visit the island. By geographical position, this Scott Landing is at the opposite side of Mahurangi West separated by Mahurangi River Estuary.

It was too windy at Snells Beach so we decided to drive to this hidden gem. Well worth it! The secluded location was exactly what we needed to rest and relax in the sun. There are plenty of amazing, huge trees to rest under too. We spent 2 hrs here and only saw 2 people. Beautiful spot for a family to spend the day, bring a picnic! You probably need to bring childrens aqua shoes as the beach is covered in shells. Beautiful but sharp!
We will return!
Oh the house is pretty cool too 😉
