Surfing lessons and standup paddle boards are available locally, along with horse trekking through the property or along the beach.

Dune vegetation on the surf beach gives way to diverse broadleaf forest on the hills further inland, lakes provide habitat for mullet and rare long-finned eels while mangroves and saltmarshes are home to kingfishers, rare fernbirds and banded rails. Tahi is also proud to host a number of endangered bird species including Kiwi, Brown Teal, Bittern and Dotterell.

  • We had a wonderful stay at Hiwi! Loved the privacy and location...

    We had a wonderful stay at Hiwi! Loved the privacy and location of the house. It was beautifully decorated and the kitchen was well equipped. The nearby Tahi cafe was delicious and we enjoyed many of the lovely walks around the property. Will definitely return.
