The nearest beach in Woodside Bay can be reached by car (two minutes away), or on foot by a steep path through the bush, passing a magnificent kauri tree. The path is a little-known private right of way. The beach is perfect for a swim or a sundowner.
Onetangi, our white sand beach village, with a range of good restaurants is a 10 minute drive away.
There are wonderful walks along Whakanewha Bay (also a 2 minute drive), where you can see dotterels nesting on the beach and there are well maintained Department of Conservation tracks through the Regional Park.
We can help you plan any walks, as we are keen walkers ourselves.
The winery we overlook produces the stunning Bordeaux blend Destiny Bay, considered to be one of New Zealand’s finest wines. The winery does not have an open cellar door, but if you are thinking of buying some of this amazing wine, we can put you in touch with Mike.
