About Pouawa Beach

Pouawa is located approximately 18km from Gisborne city.  There's good swimming, fishing and diving.

A speed restriction on the highway is in place during the Christmas holiday period.  It's to protect campers at the sites.  For your safety no tents or caravans are allowed within 10m of the road edge. No vehicles are to park within 5m of the road edge. The ground is marked out with the 5 and 10 metre lines.
