  • Great little bay to walk to from Waihi beach. Took us about 40 mins with young kids. The kids loved exploring the driftwood piles on the beach.

  • Great place to get away from it all. Stunning views.
  • A good brisk walk over the hills - 45-60 mins each way depending on the energy levels of children and adults. Great views on the way and a nice stretch of wild beach at Orokawa Bay.
  • Nice little beach esp if the main beach is busy as the hill puts a few people off - loved walking over since being a kid
