We would love to go back to Waipatiki - reminiscent of holidays as they used to be - totally unspoilt, with good breakers and lifegaurds, fishing and a cricket green and campground. loved it

This beach is a surprise as it was a trip down memory lane and is unspoiled by development. I nice beach, perfect for families on nice day. Great stuff.

We came upon the beach by chance and were the only people there. Soon after a few locals came to surf. Nice washrooms and a scenic walk along the north part of the beach.

Great little beached tucked in amongst the cliffs. Worth the drive out. I would say it's mainly for competent swimmers as the surf can be rough and there can be a steep drop off.
