Koitiata, Turakina Beach is a small and friendly community only 30 minutes from Wanganui and Marton. The house is located on the beach front with large glass sliding doors that open up on to the huge deck that gives you 180 degree views from Wellington to Mt Taranaki. Close to the campground and across the road from a good children's playground and the main entrance to the beach. Beach has four wheel drive access. Great for bird watching, fishing, four wheel driving along the beach, dirtbikes and quads.
