Enjoy a sandy, safe and tidal beach just 80 metres across the grass. Front row position. Lovely sea and summer sunset views from the dining table. Seaside children's playground is close by.
There are some really nice and safe paddles within the bay, up two mangrove creeks as well as around the coast.
A little under an hour north of Auckland, Campbells makes for a great escape place.
By car, Matakana is 7 minutes, Tawharanui Regional Park and Sandspit both 15 minutes and Warkworth suipermarket 20 minutes.
Listen to the gulls, bellbirds and tuis in the day time, kookaburras (true) at dawn and dusk and an owl at night.
