Ocean Beach, Whangarei Heads

#2 of 18 in Beaches in Northland Region
Get involved in a number of beach activities at Ocean Beach, a large white-sand shoreline with choppy waters. The sea along this coast provides lots of waves perfect for surfing, but the wind and clear waters also mean excellent conditions for wind surfing and diving. During calmer weather, take snorkeling gear and look for colorful marine life, or throw out your line and go fishing. Be careful while swimming and only do so in patrolled areas, especially with children or weak swimmers, as the current gets quite strong here. Take a picnic and plenty of water, because you will not find restaurants or snack bars here.

  • At the end of one of the roads on the Whangarei Heads, the trip is rewarded with beautiful vistas, white beach sand and surfing. So peaceful and refreshing.  more »
  • One of the most beautiful beaches we have ever been to. Forest, rocks, dunes, sand and very wide sand beach. Not at all busy. Suitable for surfing. We enjoyed it for two days. Top! Worth the effort to drive. Bring your own food and drink!
