Stopped by after visiting the Matakana Farmers market since we were nearby. It wasn't busy so it was easy to find a park. The beach was also quite open and the sand was quite fine. The beach doesn't have any sort of shade including trees...More

The best thing about Omaha Beach is the playground nearby, and I only noticed this because I have grand children. I love beaches, I live near a small beautiful beach further south of Omaha. Omaha is exposed to wind, the dunes are disappearing and it’s...More

We parked the car and started to walk towards the beach through dunes and a pond. A noise that sounded like an outboard motor could be heard and it was hundreds of frogs in the pond calling a very haunting sound. The beach is clean...More

This is my favourite beach near Auckland. Clean, good waves, not crowded, nice public. Around an hour drive from Auckland, but definitely worth it. Strongly recommend to go there for a day. Pack boards, and evrything you need, you wont be dissapointed. Matakana village is...More

Love coming to this beach, it’s one of my favourite beaches near Auckland. It’s just one long stretch of golden sand and crystal clear water. Go here....for plenty of space for playing all sorts of beach sports or just relax.

We happened to end up at Omaha beach without having planned the visit. What a gorgeous beach! We walked along the flood line across the whole stretch and back: a very nice 1 hr walk.
