Follow this circular route from either end, until gradually the ocean unveils herself, inviting you to look, swim, paddle, and dive headfirst into a limitless expanse of blue.

Start from either Whangārei or Hikurangi and feel the lure of the ocean as you travel towards the coast. Catch your breath as you round a corner to reveal a glimpse of turquoise. But why hurry? There are so many tempting side tracks along the way. Waterfalls, ancient kauri trees and breath-taking views are all within reach. Be spoilt for choice by quiet beaches and bays. Explore the gentle waters of Ngunguru and Tutukākā Harbour. And be sure to experience the underwater wonders of the Poor Knights Islands Marine Reserve.
