Our Local Favourites


Waikenae - the main town beach, family friendly

The Pipe - few hundred meters south of Waikenae & you have the town break "the pipe"


Wainui & Makorori Beach - Popular surf beaches ten minutes from the city 

Sponge Bay - The Aukuso family favourite

Food & Drinks

PBC Cafe - One of our favs for a cuppa & breakkie 

Muirs Book Shop - Head upstairs to enjoy a cuppa & delicious sweets

Te Hapara Store - Best value for $ scoop ice cream

Matawhero Wines - Enjoy a glass & platter at one of the local wineries

Kaiti Mall Bakery - Grab a loaf of local rewana bread 

The Hangi Pit - Fried bread & creamed paua/mussels to go!  Dangerous.


Rere falls, rock slide & champagne pools - 40minute drive from town but definitely worth it! (All three are a 2-3 min drive from each other)

Kaiti Hill - Beautiful views overlooking the city & coast line. Either drive up or take the fitness trail. 

River + beach walkway - enjoy a stroll along the beach & river. (note, if your brave enough & its high tide, take a leap of faith and jump off the local train bridge!)
