Ocean Beach

Image of Ocean beach. A popular spot for surfers and families, Ocean Beach is a beautiful golden sand beach a short drive from Havelock North Village. While relatively undeveloped, Ocean Beach is great for swimming and other beach activities and has surf lifesavers on duty during the summer months. The Ocean Beach Kiwi Surf Life Saving Club has been patrolling this beach since 1965.

There are two walks along Ocean Beach:

  1. South along the beach to Waimarama (7.5km one way).
    Make sure you check tide times before you go, tell someone where you are walking and allow 4 ½ hours return.
  2. North along the beach to Whakapau Bluff (8 km one way; allow 4 ½ hours return).
    Whakapau Bluff prevents easy access to the stretch of coast north to Cape Kidnappers, although locals know a reef/sandbar just off shore that can be waded at low tide if there is no surf.
