Matapouri is a fantastic place to holiday - idyllic enough to relax and get away from it all, close enough to have lots of things to fill your day, whatever the season.

Our family has enjoyed Matapouri beach for many years. It's a fantastic beach that is safe and sheltered and offers something for everyone.

The estuary behind the bach is a great place to use the two paddle boards - on the high tide you can venture a long way into the mangroves and then drift back on the outgoing tide.

Must do's include, a walk around the headland and a visit to sensational Whale Bay; walk over the point to discover and swim in Mermaid Rockpool; there are plenty of coastal walks in a short drive; Head out to the Poor Knights (snorkling and diving) on a day trip from Tutukaka; There is a tennis court (for those who don't mind the odd crack in the surface); For those who enjoy surfing (or want to learn), Sandy Bay is a short 10min drive away - while you're there try out Habanna Cabanna, a little caravan cafe hidden at the northern end of the beach; Another favourite is a visit to the Abbey Caves (about 25 mins drive) - best done during the dry months, its very cool though not for small kids. Other activities include golf in Ngunguru, horse treking from Sandy Bay and Tree Adventures. If you get tired of BBQ’ing and cooking for yourself, Schnappa Rock in Tutukaka is an institution.

    A fantastic location right on the beach with a fabulous outlook across Matapouri bay. There is easy access not only to the beach but also the estuary giving holiday makers the best of both! The property itself is nicely appointed with a lovely beach vibe and plenty of room to spread out.

    Matapouri is a real slice of paradise! We had a magnificent time swimming at the pristine beach and estuary. Highly recommend this batch as a magical getaway for anytime of the year.

  • Our second wonderful stay at this property

    Our second wonderful stay at this property . Best position on the beach in our opinion. Our elderly parents find the stairs a little difficult but the view from the master bedroom is magnificent. Super-comfortable beds. Well equipped kitchen.
