Foxton Beach

Waikawa Beach:

At Manakau, turn off to Waikawa Beach Road, and drive to the beachside settlement. Access is easy, and there is plenty of places to park vehicles and trailers.

Hokio Beach, Levin

Next north is Hokio Beach, Levin. Turn off the main road to Hokio Beach Road, and drive to Hokio. Once again, good parking facilities, and generally good riding surface on the beach. Riding north from here is excellent, taking you beside the Waitarere Forest, a restricted riding area being fenced and gates are locked.

Waitarere Beach

Access is gained by turning off the highway on to Waitarere Beach Road, and here, you are able to drive onto the beach and park there if you prefer. This beach provides excellent riding, relatively free from logs, etc.
