The waves can be seen rolling onto the beach only 50 metres down the road from the front gate. Lake Pupuke and the beautiful nature reserve is only five minute's walk offering sailing, canoeing, rowing and barbeque facilities. There is also a park at the estuary end of the beach. If you are arriving by air we can recommend transfer by PRESIDENT AIRPORT TAXIS - Phone +64 9 4889900 or Email Cost NZ$85 each way.
