Oakura Bay

Located just 45 minutes’ drive north of Whangarei City or 3 hours north of Auckland and nestled on the east coast just below the famous Bay of Islands lies Oakura Bay in Northland, New Zealand. Oakura Bay is a beautiful east facing beach, almost a kilometre long adjacent to the deep water entrance to the Whangaruru harbour. more

The Maori word Oakura is said by the local Maori Elders to refer to the phenomenon of the "AO-A-KURA" which means "the light - that comes with - the red sky" as experienced at sunrise and sunset.
