“Summer sun!”
Reviewed 17 January 2014 via mobile

Great beach, active lifeguards on duty, dont forget the umbrella coz there is no shade from the hot sun. Take shoes, the sand is hot & the water is warm. Recommend taking a surf lesson from Raglan surf school, waves are perfect for beginners! Going back again

“Warm summer swim at gorgeous beach”
Reviewed 5 January 2014 via mobile

We went mid afternoon on a day when surrounding cities were raining. Arrived there and it was sunny! The wind was warm and the water was cool. Waves not too strong. Just right for a long swim as the clouds covered the sun at times. Life guards were present. Not too crowded. Had a toddler with us.

“Raglan's best”
Reviewed 25 November 2013

Ngarunui is one of the best beaches in New Zealand, with sweeping views up the coast to Auckland. Walk down through the bush walk from Earles Place and listen out for the bell birds, tui, and fantails. You can learn to surf, paddle in the rock pools to the west, walk for miles, or just jump the waves. To the east is the bar entrance to the harbour where, on a windy day, you can be entertained by the kite surfers ripping across the surf. A great place to watch the sun go down. Newcomers should beware….there can be dangerous rips, and you should swim between the flags.
