It is a nice short walk through the bush to the beach. It is possible to got all the way down to the beach, but due to the rain, we did not go all the way down. However it was still an interesting walk

Took myself down here very early on in the morning in the hope of catching a cool sunrise but it was too cloudy.

Enjoyed the experience regardless, I'm a big nature fan and was lovely walking though the forest to the beach, was very peaceful, only walking back did I see any signs off life.

Lovely bench in between the forest and beach to admire the views, and I appreciated the signage detailing the history of the forest and how everything was used by the Maoris.

A short walk through the bush leads you to the beach and a rocky enclave with a very small waterfall on the opposite side.

Note: Make sure you check the high/low tides before you go cause the tide comes in fast and you may get stuck on the rocks for awhile which some tourists found out the hard way.

Overall: Worth the walk.

Lovely bush walk past interesting trees to a quiet beach. Small round stones make up the beach in an assortment of colours, we found masses of huge star fish in the rock pools.

So beautifully made, our first sight of how well generally all the short tourist tracks we did were made. And what a rewarding sight at the end - spectacular, glorious.
