Started the drive from Havelock along the Kenepuru Road towards Kenepuru Head but the road is just one very very very long very bendy road! I love driving but it is so repetetive we gave up after an hour. We had seen a tiny white sign on the left hand side of the road pointing down a steep dirt track! Te Mahia Bay Resort (40 mins from Havelock) is an amazing gem in the middle of no where. We only ended up stopping for tea and cakes and sitting on the patio looking out over Kenepuru sound. It is one of the most tranquil places iv ever been too in the world! The view is just spectacular and you can hear a pin drop. We watched the lage birds diving to catch fish from 50-60 metres up a truely amazing place. We wished we had the time to stay over as all the rooms looked fab and with a view to die for.
