Cleverly built platform to give an overview of that magnificent beach. If you go on the toll road you will miss Orewa.

The Orewa Lookout from the old State Highway #1 is very beautiful. It features the Orewa Beach up to Red Beach. It is worth a stop when you are nearby. It is located at the north end of Orewa.

Lovely view of the beach from above. Easier to acces from the road south as there is a little parking area but if coming the other way you have to turn into oncoming traffic to access it.

The picture says it all. Best stoping on the road south, as there is only a small parking area, but you don't need to stay long.

An excellent view southwards down the beach. Short uphill walk from the flat in Orewa. Parking available if you come from the North. Not so easy/ dangerous from the South as you have to turn across oncoming traffic. Can go further up the hill and...More
