Whanarua Bay is considered by many to be the prettiest bay on the coast. The climate here, as on so much of the coast, is without equal in New Zealand and as some claim, in the world – Whanarua Bay has its own sub-tropical micro climate.
The small beach is ideal for picnics, swimming & snorkelling. Access to the bay is over private land and vehicle access & parking is limited during peak holiday season. Caution is required at all times. Visitors are asked to walk the short distance down to the beach.
