We liked this place so much we spent parts of three days there. The car park is near the top of the headland. From there you have great views up Hokianga Harbour. A couple of tables there make a great site for a picnic, although...More

We walked the trails and enjoyed spectacular views. Then made our way down to the beach around low tide and were there by ourselves for an hour or more, even though it was a beautiful day. Awe-inspiring waves and lovely views in every direction.

A short walk giving you a range of views both inside Hokianga and of the entrance. It is quite windswept so you should have a coat with you. The views are incredible. Hokianga is so beautiful and this is one of the best places to...More

We walked out the point before sunset and it is well worth the effort. It is an easy walk from the caroark and offers great views of the Tasman sea and of the harbour. Magical views because of the storm brewing and the light changing...More

Absolutely amazing hike. Short trails and long ones, not sure which are more beautiful. Short walks for all levels. The long one you need to be fit

This walk is absolutly worth every single step, either your doing the whole 4-hours-trip or just part of it! The outstanding views are paying you back for your sweat! Easy to walk, some up and downs, needing little bit more than basic fitness level.

The beach was deserted and reminded us of our childhood. The rock formations and rock pools were beautifully clear and teaming with small sea animals. Some of the formations looked like they had been staged, but it is Mother Nature at her best. The sea...More
