Our beach bach is well loved by us and has everything you need to enjoy a very relaxed and casual holiday. Kick back here and spend your time reading, swimming, beach combing - whatever takes your fancy. Our place is designed to allow for easy interaction with the outdoors - mainly the large back yard that offers loads of space for holiday activities.
There is plenty of room to pitch a tent if you have teenagers that need their own space (or anyone for that matter). An on-site kayak is another activity the kids love to spend time on, down in the creek where it joins the beach and widens a little before meeting the sea.
There is no TV at our bach. But feel free to BYOD (bring your own device) if you are keen to watch a movie or two, as we have over 150 titles on DVD for you to choose from! Lots of books, board games and outdoor activities are also available.
The main form of cooking is a gas-fired BBQ alongside a double electric hob and microwave. There is no oven! When at the bach you do things differently from home! And there is no oven to clean at the end - an added bonus. Bring your own dishwashers!
The beach is wide and flat and appears to stretch forever. If you have a 4WD vehicle and drive south you will hit the Manawatu river, drive north and you will hit the Rangitikei river. We have a lot of success picking tuatua, and enjoy crabbing also. Surf casting is another option that plenty of visitors enjoy.
The small community of Himatangi Beach includes the Palmerston North Surf Life Saving Club, the Cosmopolitan Club, bowling club, holiday park, volunteer fire brigade, dairy and community centre including library and nurse-led medical rooms. We have been holidaying at Himatangi Beach for 18 years and love it!
