Orewa's long Pacific Ocean beach is a place for swimming, surfing and long, relaxing walks. The town centre has everything a visitor could need.

Just half an hour north of Auckland's harbour bridge, the town of Orewa spreads inland from the edge of a magnificent three kilometre beach. It's a great destination if you like swimming, surfing, kayaking, windsurfing and kite surfing. For coastal views, you can't beat a stroll along the Millennium Walkway.

Beyond the beach, entertainment possibilities include golf at Gulf Harbour, wine trails, hiking in regional parks, cycling, indoor skiing and thermal hot pools. Orewa has a comprehensive shopping centre and a wide selection of eating places. Accommodation is plentiful.
