Walking and cycling tracks abound. From the North end walk over the hills to Orokawa Bay, a pristine, unspoiled sandy beach with gnarly pohutukawa trees giving shade. 45 minutes each way.

    Great location! The nearby beach was gorgeous - white sand, great surf, and very safe, I felt. Shops were a short walk away. The house itself was clean and well kitted out with everything we needed. The beds were extremely comfy. Our stay was a fabulous one, and wouldn't hesitate to go there again. Thanks, Helen.
