Breathtakingly beautiful and worth a visit if you like peace and quiet, long empty beaches and huge sand hills.

Uretiti Beach Waipu
#50 of 205 Outdoor Activities in Northland Region
I have read reviews of beaches that would compare as a landfill to this beach and got five stars.

Whale Bay Matapouri
#55 of 205 Outdoor Activities in Northland Region
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.
Coopers Beach Mangonui

Between the quaint Mangonui Harbour and the sandy beaches of Cable Bay.
One of my favorite beaches in the area.
Rarawa Beach Kaitaia
#60 of 205 Outdoor Activities in Northland Region
One of the prettiest beaches in the Far North of New Zealand, with white silica sand and good for walking a mile or two.
I live on the gold coast at Surfers Paradise and have walked on the beaches at Waikiki this little beach Rarawa is unequalled.
The Strand Beach Russell
#75 of 205 Outdoor Activities in Northland Region
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.
Mangawhai Beach Mangawhai
#83 of 205 Outdoor Activities in Northland Region
There is a surf beach which is great for long walks and shell collecting and harbour beaches with safe swimming and deep clear water, but watch the currents.
Nice introduction to the beaches of north New Zealand
Sandy Bay Tutukaka
#92 of 205 Outdoor Activities in Northland Region
Just 5 minutes from other beautiful beaches such as Matapouri bay.
great spot just a short drive north of Tutukaka , easy parking right by the beach with some trees with shade.
Koutu Boulders Opononi
#93 of 205 Outdoor Activities in Northland Region
This was a riveting walk along the beach The boulders are surreal with the way nature has shaped the rocks into unique shapes.
Best time to visit the boulders is of course around low tide, because the beach is very small/not existing at high tide.

Only a 30min drive from Coopers beach.
