Enjoy the ambience of a real kiwi holiday retro bach close to the beach, flat section with plenty of parking, good swimming, fishing closeby. Stroll along the harbourside track to the Kawhia village and check out the fabulous fish and chips, fish or dive off the wharf, enjoy a drink or a meal at the Kawhia Hotel, Rusty Snapper, , Boating Club, Sports Club. Check out the Museum and the local Arts and Crafts shops. Take a fishing charter or surfcast off the wharf, harbour or ocean side. Dig a hot pool at low tide at Te Puia Springs, Ocean beach while you watch a magnificent sunset. Drive out to Aotea beach 10mins away and check out the harbourside walk and beach there. Enjoy a walk past the boat ramp and lagoon out to the harbour entrance and ocean beach. For a bit of further exploration, Raglan is an hour north on a scenic (some gravel) road, with the Bridal Veil Falls a short detour. To the south of Kawhia are the seaside destinations of Te Waitere, Marokopa and Kiritihere with Piripiri Caves and the Natural Bridge and waterfall nearby. Otorohanga Kiwi and Native Bird house is 55 km drive and Waitomo Caves, Blackwater rafting an hours drive. Maybe you just want to relax and let time stand still, watch the tide go in and out? Read a book. Perfect. The choice is yours. Enjoy!
