Peace and Quiet, another world - just 3 hours from central Auckland.

Tutukaka is like stepping back 20 years, just fantastic.

Drive along Landowners Lane and park on Reserve Car Park and then walk over the headland for stunning all round views. If the tide is low then walk down to the beach and climb up to the lighthouse on the island of Scenic Reserve for more fabulous views of Tutukaka harbour and its many bays and further along the coastline. About 2 hours return. For a longer walk start from the Marina car park and walk up to the Reserve car park through bush

From trips out to the Poor Knights for diving and fishing; to walks along Matapouri BEach and Wooley's Bay.... or a surf at Sandy Bay.... There is much to do, fresh salty air and views and experiences galore. Whale Bay and its secluded nature was a special highlight for us.

Nice little walk - make sure you check the tides. Easy climb down to the beach but after heavy rainfall, the climb up and down to the lighthouse was a little more treacherous. But the views from the top were well worth it, and we loved the harassment by 3-4 very protective Mr Fantails!
