takeaways, café and restaurant. Levin, the nearest town
is 10 minutes easy drive should you need something more.
Waitarere beach is wide and sandy allowing plenty of room for
all your favourite beach activities including land yachts, 4 wheel
motor bikes, surfing and fishing. The beach slowly drops off into
deep water so there's plenty of safe paddling space for the youngsters
and during the summer months, the surf club set up patrol.
Beach is also a popular fishing spot where Kohawai, Snapper, Groper,
Gurnard, Flounder and Soul are the most common catches. The large,
flat beach is ideal to back your boat with a tractor or a four-wheel
drive. During the Whitebait season you can find a spot to sit
your net at the Manawatu or the Ohau river mouths.
well-established forest surrounds Waitarere Beach and is host
to several popular annual events such as the 'Great Forest Marathon'.
Orienteering, and Mountain biking also make use of the forest
floor and bring in a lot of interest from outside the Horowhenua.
The forest is a popular spot to walk your dog and with the many
tracks cutting through to the beach, you can enjoy the forest
one way and the beach on the way back!
and discover for yourself the peace and tranquillity of this waterfront
paradise that is Waitarere Beach.
