I had a few swims in the beach, walked from one end to the other and saw a lot of seagulls etc. I also walked up the headland to the top which is very good but rather steep.

Had nice time at beach and did the walk to summit to see views of bay. Would loved to have spent some more time here as looked like good place to chill. Good milkshakes in carpark too

Fantastic family beach. Chean and safe. Great at sunset when an array of seabirds visit. Great for surfing and swimming.

Beautiful beach. Although I don't think New Zealand has any ugly ones. The great part about this one is it's away from the crowded popular ones. It was clean and relaxing. Spent the afternoon searching for sea shells. On the day we were there it...More

The beach is nice and long, the surf is lively but the current doesn't seem too strong. My 7 year old son enjoyed it immensely

A really nice beach with a huge expanse of sand. Also some great nesting birds on the top of the beach - roped off. Great beach for Frisbee etc. A nice place for a leisurely walk

The life savers patrol only a small area of this huge beach in front of their club, so it can be quite crowded in this spot. The beach was huge both long but also you could go quite far out as it was quite shallow...More

People get married here and hold other celebrations. It's a nice long beach too. The Kiwis keep hats on their kids but don't usually have them. We suggest lots of sunblock and a sun hat.

Hi the Puka Park has a very nice restaurant, there are a few in the village, but some do not open all the time.We stayed for a week and did not go hungry, you really need a car to get around.Hope this helps a little.
