... fishing, boating of every kind, surfing, scuba-diving, you name it! The only thing that we noted the absence of is a boulevard where one can have a stroll to see and be seen.
An idea for those managing European beaches: as the row of dunes is quite narrow, fragile and prone to erosion the number of passages is limited. Also, there are rare and protected birds nesting here in summer, and dogs are simply banned from the beach during the 3 summer ...
So as we left Rotorua (and some sausage rolls for breakfast in the roadside bakery), we stopped in one of the many vineyards on the way. It was a beautiful estate overlooking a valley with avocado trees. Didn't like any of their red wines but loved the white wines which we got 3 bottles. Oh, and we visited the naturalist park on the way. We went as far as the reception where we were greeted by a naked old man. I couldn't stop giggling so ...

It is rare to find a 5 kilometre stretch of white sand dune beach with not a single house nor any other sign of civilization in sight. Beach access is by way of the quaint wooden footbridge and a leisurely 20 minute stroll through the forest. The beach has a raw beauty with spectacular views out to Slipper Island.

You only have to wriggle your toes a bit in the sand and when you feel hot water you start digging. Of course the beach was terribly crowded, but it was hilarious to see all the grown ups digging frantically in the sand, searching hot water spots. Eventually we found one as well and together with another ...

I have stayed here a few times & I love this place. It's clean & modern, not too pricey. The pool is great & easily accessible from the rooms. It's close to the highway but not noisy at all & is a great distance from the beach.
Love this place!
