“Fabulous beach with awesome views.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013 via mobile

Have walked up n down this beach many times. Always end up finding something to take home with me. Fabulous beach with awesome views. On a clear day you can see White Island, some days puffing smoke others just sitting on the horizon. Worth going for a walk over the hill at West End to Otarawairere, hot n steep but gorgeous beach on other side.

“Safe Beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013

It is a very safe beach with a gentle slope into the sea. A well organised surf club operates during the summer months. The sand is white and the waves sparkle in the sunshine. The beach extends for about 11kms along the coast from West End to Ohiwa Harbour. A great place to live or visit.

“Sandcastle Takeaway”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2012

Came across this takeaway on a hill. Best Chicken Burgers, BLT's and service you will ever come across. Drop in and say hi to a great family run business.
