  • Very beautiful spot that we found out about through talking with a lovely local. A great place to swim, view nature, and to picnic and camp.  more »
  • This park is beautiful, we had our wedding photos there, such a variety and all so picturesque. There are many hidden treasures if you follow the walks. Plenty of parking.  more »
  • Our friends took us to this park and it was wonderful. We walked through the woods and saw lots of birds and flowers. The views of the bay and waterfronts were glorious.  more »

  • One of the better beaches in the area. Well looked after. Nice walks and great water and wild life. If you are looking for nice camping spot? Please check it out👍
  • This little slice of paradise has something for everyone. Tawharanui sanctuary has a great surf beach with great barrels, a marine reserve with gin clear water and bustling with life, wide white sand beaches, protected native bushes (such as the ecology bush walk) that are bustling with native birds. This place is a surfers/hiker/beachbum/snorkelers dream!
  • Beautiful beaches, surf, amazing array of bird life. Great walking tracks. Rock fishing too.
  • Absolutely beautiful park. Boasts a large white sand beach and several stunning tracks. Great for surfing or a family day out. Very close to matakana and Omaha.
  • Paradise without the crowds (normally). This place gets very busy around dinner holidays and long weekends. Most of the year it is Paradise and almost empty. Take the run from Omaha beach around the rocks at low tide you won't regret it.
