Switch to beach bum mode in Opononi where a classic seaside retreat is waiting for you.

Spend days on end drifting between the sea, sun and sand in Opononi. Amp it up by going sand boarding at the nearby dunes or unwind by fishing from Opononi or Omapere wharves. Pack lunch and drive inland to the fertile Waima forest for hiking. While you’re there, check out Waitemarama falls. Along the coast, visit natural phenomenons like the Koutu Boulders and towards the headlands of Hokianga Harbour the pristine Arai Te Uru nature reserve.
