- Heritage homestead as a backdrop
- Intriguing coastline and island to explore
- A sense of adventure as you are at the end of the road (literally)
- Boat ramp
Scotts Landing is a walk through history. Mahurangi East entrance is narrow with parking at a premium due to the commercial fishing / seafood operations, the boat ramp and holiday makers looking to park their car. The short boardwalk leads past the magnificent historic homestead framed by enormous pohutukawa trees and a small sandy beach. At low tide walk the causeway between Scotts Landing and Casnell island (Motu Maunganui). The island was a pa (village) site in the 16th century. The coast is known as the oyster coast so swimming shoes could be necessary at low tide with the sharp rocky low tide shoreline. It is the perfect place for kids to explore the shallows. There are no lifeguards and the toilets are located at the small car park.
Scotts Landing, Scotts Homestead and Mahurangi Regional Park (East) is south of Algiers Bay at the tip of the Mahurangi Peninsula.
