Off the Beaten Track to... Puheke Beach

Copyright: New Zealand Tourism Guide. Puheke Beach, Kaitaia, New Zealand

Doubtless Bay is often described as a holiday makers' paradise with its warm sub-tropical climate, over 70 kilometres of unspoilt coastline and an abundance of safe swimming beaches. Its popularity is justified, but where do you head when you want to enjoy some surfing, some swimming and some lazing about without everyone else in tow? Well, the answer is Puheke Beach.

Puheke Beach is a glorious surf beach which invites you in for a swim or a paddle. If you walk along the stretch of beach, away from any other swimmers who have chanced upon it, there will nothing ahead of you but the great sweep of the coast, the white sand and the dunes. This idyllic beach offers you a truly blissful retreat.

What To Do

  • Swimming, surfing and strolling
  • Fishing and boating
  • Birdwatching
  • Climbing Mt Puheke for ocean views

Getting There

  • To Doubtless Bay, head north on State Highway 10 – it's a 40-minute drive from Kaitaia.
  • To Puheke Beach - Turn off the State Highway 10 onto Inland Road leading to Maitai Bay, and follow the road signs.
