Additional Location Information

With a spectacular white sandy beach and estuary, this popular beach is among the best that New Zealand has to offer. Great for families or relaxing getaways, discover the Mermaid Pools at low tide, fish off the bridge for dinner or simply enjoy an ice cream from the local store.

A short drive or a walk via Matapouri Bay will take you to Whale Bay, named because it was an ideal location for Maori to launch their early whaling missions. This idyllic white sandy beach is great for swimming and snorkelling with calm, clear blue water. Grab a picnic, your mask and snorkel and enjoy a peaceful walk with stunning views through native Puriri, Pohutukawa and Kowhai trees.

Matapouri also has a playground, tennis court, parking and toilets nearby.
