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.

    The cottage is very close to the beach and in a quiet neighborhood setting. It has a front porch and a deck for sitting on and enjoying the outdoors. It was clean and had everything we neede. We only wish we could have stayed longer.
