What a scenic drive all along the Tutukaka coastline and this is one of the many bays and beaches we found back in February 2016 and much enjoyed in our two week stay locally.
High tide I think is the best time to go, but it's idyllic on all tides with the pohutukawa on the beaches.

I have read reviews of beaches that would compare as a landfill to this beach and got five stars.
Beach as far as the eye can see ... beautiful white sands soft ... pretty shells to find when beach combing ... wonderful waves ... just a wonderful place to relax.

Russel is special, it has 3 beaches - the The Strand Beach (Just pebbles), Long Beach (Sand & waves) and Tapeka (rocks and rugged).
Living in Russell and being able to walk this beach regularly in all weathers is a blessing and a gift from Mother Nature.

Best time to visit the boulders is of course around low tide, because the beach is very small/not existing at high tide.
Walk on the soft, white sandy beach, enjoying the gentle breeze and came to the 3 diameter large boulders.
