Mahinepua coastal walk

Beautiful Mahinepua is 8 km from Matauri Bay and 12 Km. from Whangaroa.

Mahinepua Peninsula Track

Length: 2 km Time: approx 2 hrs return


The track leaves from the eastern end of Mahinepua Beach (end of Mahinepua Road, off Wainui Road on the coast north of Matauri Bay). Follow markers up the farm track to the Reserve. Please keep to the track, cliffs exist in this area. Return via the same track. Please respect private property. The track travels the length of the peninsula, mainly along the ridgetop, giving access to the many sheltered bays and providing outstanding coastal views.

Check out this video which features Mahinepua and other beaches not too far from the walkway. It gives a good idea of the type of coastal area this is.

Last time I did the walk there were tons of Dolphins playing
