Things to do

McLeod Bay is a safe swimming beach 10 minutes walk or 2 minutes drive
away. Or take your choice among a variety of other sheltered bays.
Cockles and pipis can be collected when the tide is out from Pataua.


Life guard patrolled surf beach, Ocean beach is only 10 minutes drive
away. But you don't have to be a surfer to enjoy it. It is also great for body
boards or just splashing in the waves.


New Zealand's latest DOC marine reserve is at the end of the Reotahi
road. The combination of deeper water and swift current flows has
produced a diverse reef-fish population unusual for a harbour environment.

Free commuity guided snorkel days are available in summer.

Kayak tours are available locally at Onerahi to explore the Heads by water.


A folder in the unit provides further information and maps on things to do.
