The walk to Orokawa Bay commences at the northern end of Waihi Beach. It may not be possible to access this track from the beach at times of high tide and strong swell. The track is popular and skirts the coastal headlands before descending into Orokawa Bay. This beach is not considered safe for swimming due to the steep grade of the seafloor, but is popular for picnicking with its lovely overhanging pohutukawa.

Thank You - to the thousands of travellers that have contributed to our Top Voted NZ Activities Map - it's free from Rankers.
Really nice walk, good views along the way. The beach at Orokawa Bay is beautiful, not that safe for swimming as it is a really steep beach. This is most stunning when the pohutukawa flowers are out in late December!
Rewarding, not too challenging.
Very nice place to do a walk and have good time
Go to the last Bay, what a lovely spot. Take a lunch.
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 😍
