Learn a little of the history of the beaches and enjoy either a 10 – 15 minute guided walk at each beach or a peaceful sit – your choice at each stop.
- We start with morning tea under an enormous pohutukawa tree above Langs Beach followed by a short walk, or bring your folding chair and just gaze out to sea.
- On to Waipu Cove where you get your ice cream and a stroll on the beach.
- Back over the hill to Mangawhai Heads and after a look at the dune restoration project, those choosing to walk will climb up to a lookout point where you can often see as far as the Coromandel in the distance.
- We then head south to Te Arai for a picnic lunch and our final walk.
Degree of difficulty: Easy short walks offered at each beach.
Equipment: Sneakers should do the trick. Bring your own folding chair if you wish for some beach comfort. Bring m’tea, a picnic lunch, water.
