Explore the edges of huge, shallow Parengarenga Harbour - the pure quartz sand is dazzling.

Visit the magnificent sparkling waters and silica sand beaches of Henderson’s Bay and Rarawa Beach, plus the Three Kings Islands, Rangaunu Harbour.

The picturesque settlement of Houhora Heads is long, narrow and has a mostly sheltered harbour which is great for camping.

Nearby Gumdiggers Park is where two Ancient Kauri Forests have been buried at this site by cataclysmic prehistoric events. Some of which are over 100,000 years old!
