GRADE 2: Discover the serenity of isolation
Visit one of New Zealand’s most beautiful and peaceful beaches. Discover the serenity and isolation of Tomarata.
This mostly flat (except for a climb over Te Arai headland) beautiful walk takes us from the Lake View Chalets with their clear view of the sand-lakes, Slipper and Spectacle, around Lake Tomarata through pine forest, and out to the southern section of Te Arai beach with its brilliant white sands, wild waves and isolation.
Look out for the sea birds and the memorial seat as we return on the loop track.
Degree of difficulty: Easy walking with a single climb onto the Te Arai headland.
Equipment: Boots recommended but good walking shoes would be fine.
Bus: Departs Saturday 9.00am, 4hrs, $30.00
