If you are fortunate enough to be staying at Pacific Rendezvous Resort this summer, you are right in the middle of some of the most exciting ‘things to do’, all within easy access from the Resort.
Tutukaka Coast beaches are among the most spectacular in New Zealand, and there are so many beaches to choose from, each with individual character and beauty. The white sandy beaches include Matapouri Bay, Woolley’s Bay, Whale Bay and Whangaumu Bay. The inner harbour pebble beaches are Pacific Bay, Kowharewa Bay and Church Bay (accessible via Tutukaka Block Road). There is also the famous surf beach, Sandy Bay. And that’s only to get you started!
Roads and pathways lead to many of the beaches, whilst others are accessible via the coast by climbing around the rocks at low tide. If you are looking for action and adventure or a peaceful, private bit of sand away from others, there is something for you on the beaches of the Tutukaka Coast. Any time of year from dawn to dusk, the beaches of the Tutukaka Coast will take your breath away. So bring your camera, enjoy the lovely coastline and leave behind only your footsteps in the sand.
