About Tokomaru Bay

8km sandy beach, good fishing and surfing, care is required when swimming.

The beach slopes sharply and can be challenging at high tide. The adjacent Mangahauimi Stream could become contaminated after rain from the run-off from farms and forestry upstream.

A popular camping spot in summer
