A long sandy beach set in a beautiful part of the coast this is a long sandy beach. Very popular with fishermen, locals and tourists. Worth a trip if you are nearby or looking for a great place to get away from it.

Overcast day so decided to walk the walking track over the hill and down to the beach. What a walk, up sooo many steps lost count and needed to rest several times, but as we are in our late 70's and 80's we earned the rest stops.. Felt much better when walk completed and happy we had achieved one more... More

We were very lucky with the weather so it made the experience even more enjoyable! The views on Whale and White islands are amazing, the beach is not busy at all and the water is pure!

As the title says, great for surf but limited accommodation (and no mid-range). Ideal summer location

This is a winderfully safe and interesting beach. Plenty of room for everyone. Good, steady, moderate surf for body boarding and learning to surf. The Okiwa Harbour is a playground for kayakers, paddle boarders and wildlife enthusiasts.

Visited on a warm day, sand lovely, flat and clean. Water clean with no evidence of rips. Lots of surfing activity on bend but main beach area available for swimming and families. Nice grassed area for picnics and families near children's playground. Cleanliness of amenities very good!
