With rocky headlands at each end of the bay and a golden beach, Tokomaru Bay sprawls along 8kms of coastline. Toko is an ideal place for swimming, surfing and fishing. It's an area rich in culture and history which has been cherished by kuia and koroua.

Ruakokore Church. Has to be one of the best Church locations in the world. A family of penguins live underneath it and the vista is fabulous.
