So close to Auckland CBD yet a world away. Great location on the coast and accessible from Puhoi Canoe hire. Orewa close for any forgotten essential items (for picnic etc).

This is a very pleasant place for a picnic, lots of trees for shade and parking, and it's safe for younger children to play in the shallow waters as well.
