GRADE 1 – Max 35 This walk which was new in 2018, met with a very high approval rating. It takes in four of the most beautiful beaches in the country in just over 4 hours!
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. 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.
