The famous Split Apple Rock Beach is just down the road. Unfortunately, this road is not safe to be walked so we recommend to take your car (3 minutes) to the public car park area at Tokongawa Drive and walk to the beach (we call it the 15/30 walk: 15 mins down, 30 mins up). There is public toilets at the beach but no other facilities so please bring your own snacks and water.
Kaiteriteri Beach is a 10 minute drive by car down the road, offering swimming, kayaking and restaurants with Sea View. Many tour operators start their trips right from this famous Kiwi spot. Kaiteriteri has deep water so the tides don’t affect this beach too much – swimming is possible all day long.
Marahau Village and Beach is 5 minutes by car, also offering a variety of food spots in foot walking distance from the golden sand. Please note Marahau is tidal and swimming is only possible at high tide.
All bookings can be cancelled for free up to 7 days prior to Check-In. Payment needs to be made by 7 days prior to stay, there is no refund within a week’s time before Check-In.
