Tapu Bay Beach

Tapu Bay

Tapu Bay is just a 2 minute walk (200 meters) from your accomodation, down a track for access to the beach which is wonderful for long walks in the sun especially at low tide. There is vast views of the Tasman bay on offer on a clear day you can see all the way to D’Urville island.

Ask Rebecca or Merv to show you the way!

Stephens Bay Beach

Stephens Bay

Stephens Bay is just a five minute stroll down the length of Stephens Bay Road, you will find a very safe swimming beach that is a little less busy than Kaiteriteri's main beaches. Kayaks and smaller boats can be launched at Stephens Bay, this is a great place to spend the day relaxing in the sun, swimming, boating, fishing - there are endless hours of summer fun for all!

Looking Down The Kaiteriteri Coast

Tracks All Around

A slightly longer walk over the hill from Stephens Bay will take you to Kaiteriteri's main beach. There are stunning views of the Tasman Bay looking up the coast from many spots on this walk; photo opportunities abound, we highly reccomend this track.
