Explore the Matakana Coast, from Pūhoi to Pākiri, Warkworth, Leigh, Whangateau, Kaipara, Te Hana and Matakana Village.

Discover Auckland’s playground on the Matakana Coast.

From the leafy Bohemian village of Pūhoi to the sparkling sands of Pakiri Beach, each historic settlement has unique character and charm.

Dive deep into history at Te Hana, drop a fishing line in Kawau Bay or grab the surfboard and head for Omaha or Tawharanui. Go snorkelling in the renowned Goat Island Marine Reserve, then wrap up the day with live music and an ice-cold beverage at Leigh.

Toddlers and young children will love exploring the shady shoreline at Snells Beach, Scott’s Landing, or Whangateau, where the clear, calm waters are perfect for paddleboarding, kayaking and splashing about.

Need a break from sand and sea? Pop into Matakana Village or Warkworth for a relaxing spa treatment and discover art, shopping and dining with a sophisticated edge. Or for those golf lovers you are spoilt for choice from the 18 hole sand based golf course ranked in the top 10% in New Zealand, Omaha Beach Golf Club or one of the other community golf courses in Warkworth and Wellsford.

With stunning boutique wineries, vibrant markets and famously friendly locals, there’s so much to discover on the Matakana Coast.
