The track to Wharariki Beach is about 20 minutes over farm paddocks and through a section of coastal forest, before arriving at the beautiful windswept coast.
The best time to visit is at low tide, when you can walk the length of the beach and take in spectacular coastlines, caverns, islands, and enormous sand dunes along the way.
Wet boots aside this is a spectacular beach and well worth a visit, next time we will come prepared and do the Hilltop track 🙂
How to get there. Travel North from Collingwood to Puponga, it’s well sign posted from there.
