Located about 90 minutes north of Auckland central or 25 minutes from Matakana our first stop along this tour is the town centre of Mangawhai. Offering a great range of activities from art trails, cafe's, lawn bowls or golf to more adventurous fishing, diving & surfing Mangawhai has something for everybody.
It is a popular busy spot in summer for surfers and families from Auckland making there way out of the city during the holidays. In more recent years the area has gone from a more rural township and seasonal summer spot to a busy upmarket suburban township with all the modern amenities while still giving you the feel of a relaxing home away from home.
Further along the coast, Waipu Cove is a smaller more boutique version of Mangawhai. A popular spot for camping, glow-worm caves, kayaking and the drift wood creations art gallery
If your planning to stay the night and explore a bit more we highly recommend Bream Bay lodge which provides private luxury accommodation, wedding and cinema facilities, animal farm and private beach and cove access.
