Waimarama is one of the most sought-after coastal resorts in the country. Its long stretches of sandy beach are ideal for walking, jogging, swimming, surfing and fishing. It has mobile phone coverage and a general store (which does fantastic fish and chips).
Waimarama is 20 minutes' drive from Havelock North, past the spectacular Craggy Range winery.
Waimarama Beach is a typical attractive East Coast golden sand beach. Some permanent residents live here, but in the main Waimarama is a popular weekender and picnic venue.
This beach yields an abundance of pipis, while flounders are occasionally speared near the water's edge.
