“Relaxing at cooks beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2013

Cooks Beach is a beautiful relaxing spot - the beach is great to walk - high tide can be difficult as water reaches retaining wall for a short section. Swimming in the Estuary is fun - swim over to the other side as it's much sandier. Simple dairy and takeaways bring your supplies with you if you are staying for a few days or take the ferry (passenger) over to Whitianga to get your supplies and have a look around.

“Great beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2013

Great beach, nice for kids, however very little to no shade, so take an umbrella! No shops on the beach, but its only a short walk to the shops where there is a cafe, little shop and a take away.
