The whole Tutukaka Coast (although becoming overrun and over-populated to a certain extent) is magnificent.

From trips out to the Poor Knights for diving and fishing; to walks along Matapouri BEach and Wooley's Bay.... or a surf at Sandy Bay.... There is much to do, fresh salty air and views and experiences galore. Whale Bay and its secluded nature was a special highlight for us.

Nice little walk - make sure you check the tides. Easy climb down to the beach but after heavy rainfall, the climb up and down to the lighthouse was a little more treacherous. But the views from the top were well worth it, and we loved the harassment by 3-4 very protective Mr Fantails!

Lush green grass track from the carpark over the hill and down to the rocky headland. Great ocean views, with rocky coves, and beautiful blue water. Lighthouse at the end. Great walk and views for a few hours.

A great place to chill on any day. A drive from the town centre of Whangarei but well worth it. There are cafes on the way, or take a picnic and sit on the beach. There is plenty of room for everyone as there is lots of beach.

You access the lighthouse by Landowners Road (runs directly above Marina & is first road on right when leaving Tutukaka driving towards Matapouri). Right at end of Landowners Road is a carpark. Walking track easy to find. Please note you need for it to be low tide as you walk across a tidal area before climbing up hill to reach... More

Make sure you check the tides. It is necessary to cross a causeway, this can only be done at low tide. Steep steps leading from the headland down to the causeway and across to Kukutauwhao Island where the lighthouse is situated. The walk from the causeway to the lighthouse is also steep but well worth the walk, the 360 degree... More
