With its broad sandy beach, world-renowned wildlife reservation and an array of outdoor activities for the whole family, Foxton Beach is the ideal place to get away and reconnect.

The nearby Manawatu River estuary and wetland is of international ornithological significance and has RAMSAR status – see if you can spot a royal spoonbill or the other 92 bird species that spend time here.

Outdoor enthusiasts can burn some energy stand-up paddle-boarding, kite surfing, cycling, mountain biking and skating. The Pump Track is sure to keep the kids entertained for hours. In the summer months the beach is patrolled by surf life-savers but remember to swim between the flags. 

An 8.5 kilometre (km) loop of shared cycling and walking pathways connects the parks and reserves with the beach and estuary and a 3.5km pathway links Foxton Beach to Foxton township(opens in new window)

Foxton beach is perfect for a long weekend or short getaway with accommodation options to suit all budgets.
