There are so many of them in this area but this one is quite special. Very long, white sand and dunes. Great for picnics and families. Quite a flat beach which should make it safe for swimming. Lovely to walk on, for kilometres.

A great base to explore the Coromandel, there's golf, fishing, lovely walks... a beautiful, unspoilt, child friendly beach that is never too busy. Great place to go if you want to explore the area, or just relax and recharge the batteries.

We decided to walk down to the beach, which was clean and almost deserted. Access was easy but there were no lifeguards or bouyancy aids if needed.

but watch out for the big crabs on the ocean floor. They don't bite. Waves were really good, not too big..enough for teens and small children to have a good time.
