Located 35 km north-east of Whangarei, the settlement of Matapouri boasts a picture-postcard sandy beach set in an inviting rocky coastline. The track starts at the top of the hill north of M. Matapouri Road. From Matapouri the track links to a Whangarei District Council track which extends to Whale Bay.
This is a stunning loop track that leads you to wonderful small and secluded, sandy beaches. Much of the track meanders through forest, where the shady canopy provides a refreshing reprieve from the sun during the height of summer, and the beaches provide great opportunities to cool off.

Short walk with nice views and rewarded at the end by beautiful whale's beach.
Thanks to all the good people working for the NZ Department of Conservation - for all your hard work - making NZ more beautiful, accessable and healthy! Cheers 😍
