On the left 3km from School House Bay is the Maungaroa Marae with a whale boat on display. This is the historic “Greyhound” that in 1993 was returned to the coast from Gisborne Museum. The ruins of the original boat shed can be seen on the beach below the marae.
Look for the signs indicating the path between two mature pohutukawa trees to the grave of Princess Te Rangi Pai and her husband John Howie. The grave is marked with a guardian angel. The couple lived in “Kopuakoeaea” at Maungaroa.
