A bit of winding road to the lookout but worth it. When we were there, there was a sea mist which made White Island look like it was floating, spectacular

Spotted the signpost and decided to drive up. It's a gravel road most of the way but well worth the drive - only a couple of km. Stunning views over whakatane and the surrounding area. Great photo opportunities

The views are spectacular from Kohi Point and definitely worth a ‘lookout’ from here. Great place for taking photos with or without people in the picture.

Amazing views of Whale Island and the ocean. You can look right out over Whakatane Town also. A nice, peaceful place

This is worth taking in as the view is great and reinforces the beauty of the place, which is not what you see about Whakatane at ground level. It is a few minutes from town, but it is worth it. A great place to take...More

I did this short hike from town, and while it is alot of uphill hiking, once atop the grass filled summit, you'll be very satisfied you made the incline you did! For walking, go to the intersection of The Strand (a street), and Commerce Street,...More

I stopped here to stretch the legs & take a break from driving. The views here are breath-taking looking out among the vast land.

We stopped briefly up here to stretch our legs and have some afternoon tea - the views are stunning and there is a really nice stretch of grass for the kids to run. The gravel road was steep in parts but we got up there...More
