Twin Coast Discovery Road Trip Northland & Bay of Islands


@Oakura Village Taranaki @Oakura Village Taranaki

Oakura, similar to Whananaki North, is an eclectic mix of traditional baches with newer luxury beach towns. Oakura is close to a number of glorious beaches: Teal Bay, Ngawhai Bay, Ngahau Bay, Mimiiwhangatu Marine and Coastal Reserve. From rocky bays to sheltered beaches, swimming holes and sand beaches perfect for building sand castles.

Oakura, as a hub for a beach holiday, has nurtured a creative spirit with a number of artists, jewellers and craftspeople working from home studios in and around the district. Beach holiday goers can book fishing charters from the sheltered Whangaruru Harbour. Forward booking is essential during the peak summer season both for accommodation and trips. If you are beguiled by the thought of a Northland holiday detour, lazing in the warmth of Oakura Bay check HOME – Whangaruru beachfront camping holiday.


TIP: Be warned it is a very popular destination with many repeat visitors.  Bookings are often several months in advance. Other accommodation options in the Oakura Bay region  include The Farm. “The Farm is a 1000 acre working dairy farm just a short drive from Whangarei. For over 20 years the family has been home with longtime crew, volunteers, and travellers from all over the world that have made The Farm their home”. Both AirBNB and BookaBach are popular alternatives for holiday makers.

VISIT DURATION: 2 HOURS (perhaps a few days)
