About the neighbourhood
Tapeka is a small community of mainly holiday homes and retirees on a peninsular with water either side. This is a private location with no passing traffic noise as the road ends at Tapeka. The area is very secure and safe. Russell township is just a 2 minute drive or 20 minute walk. Close to facilities but quiet and isolated from noise and people. The sandy Tapeka Beach is right in front or 100m down the road is Rocky Beach, a stony beach looking out to the islands with access to fishing rocks around Tapeka Point and a coastline to explore. Behind the beach house is a 20 min walk to the top of Tapeka point where 360 degree views await. There are other walks through native bush and Kiwi habitat. Historic Russell village has much to explore
Getting around
A car is recommended. Passenger ferries operate from Russell wharf to Paihia. There are superb walking tracks and bike hire in Russell. Tapeka del Mar is ideally situated as a base to explore Northland's many other attractions
