Pacific Coast Highway & Hauraki Gulf road trip: Auckland to the Coromandel

Maraetai beach

Maraetai Beach Maraetai Beach

Maraetai beachfront has a large grassed area perfect for big family picnics and a game of beachball. There is a wooden boardwalk with seating encouraging visitors to relax, rest and people watch. And a wharf where water bombing is a summer rite of passage. The marina has budding yachties practicing all their moves on the water with white sails, an impromptu photo moment. Throw down the beach towel and enjoy.



Maraetai is a great lunchtime stop with parking for a motohouse and boardwalk to explore the beach. Beach Cafe Maraetai – Home offers classic kiwi lunch fare with an attached ice cream bar doing a roaring summer trade. For a spicy lunch Foreshore Indian Restaurant has an online ordering system for people in a hurry.
