Street Address
“There are lots of places to access the 4km sandy beach in Matarangi with lots of paths leading through the streets but if you head down Kenwood Drive to the end you will end up at the 'Village Green' with carpark, playground, toilets and a public free to use BBQ with access to the beach. A great place to base yourself for a day on the beach.”

Street Address
“This is one of my favourite walks in Matarangi - walking around the spit. Beautiful views over the entrance to the harbour, along the golf course and through the woods. To do the loop walk from the Villa all the way to the wharf and back it is probably about 5-6km. At the end of the spit is the conservation area where native endangered Doterels are being protected. Please take note of the signs. There is a map in the Villa showing the walk but head towards the Northern end of the beach for access to the path that runs along beach and just keep following the path. It is quicker to walk back to the villa via the roads once you have reached the wharf.”

“Just an 8 to 10 minute walk from the Villa for the quickest access to the beach. There are lots of paths leading to and from the beach so you never know where you will end up walking if you choose a different route.”
